Towards a dynamic view of slip along faults

Start: 01 October 2019

End: 01 March 2023

Status: In progress

Slip modes are various along a fault: rapid through an earthquake, steady slow at the tectonic plate velocity or as transient pulses, called slow slip events.

GNSS network continuously measure the Earth’ surface deformation, some of which are the result of slip along the faults. So far, slip modes are modelled separately from the others. However, several observations suggest that slip modes interact with each other.

The purpose of this thesis work, using GNSS data, focuses on a new kinematic inversion approach to model the spatio-temporal evolution of all slip modes along the faults.
