EXTENDED NUCLEATION OF THE 1999 MW 7.6 IZMIT EARTHQUAKE (2011)

Laboratory and theoretical studies suggest that earthquakes are preceded by a phaseof developing slip instability in which the fault slips slowly before accelerating todynamic rupture. It is reported here that one of the best recorded large earthquakes todate, the 1999 Mw 7.6 Izmit (Turkey) earthquake, was preceded by a seismic signal oflong duration which originated from the hypocenter
