August edition of Nature Geoscience

last modified Aug 18, 2015 02:52 PM

This month’s Nature Geoscience features an article and an image on the cover by Professor Bob White. The image shows the Holuhraun fissure eruption in Iceland on 2 September 2014. 

The article: Triggered earthquakes suppressed by an evolving stess shadow from a propagating dyke, by Robert G Green, Tim Greenfield and Robert S White.

The role of static versus dynamic stresses in earthquake clusters is unclear. Analysis of earthquakes triggered by a dyke intrusion at an Icelandic volcano unambiguously demonstrates that static stresses are important for earthquake clustering.
