<p>We review the long term evolution of seismicity in the eastern Marmara Sea over a decade, before and after the 1999 Mw 7.6 Izmit earthquake. We analyze large scale space-time variations of seismicity in the region and illustrate the impact of the recent ...

<p>Natural open joints in rocks commonly present multiscale self-affine apertures.The goal of this paper is to find a geometrical model of the complex aperture that describes at best the macroscopic properties (hydraulic conductivity, heat exchange) with the ...

<p>Vertical stylolites are pressure solution features, which are considered to be caused by horizontal tectonic loading, with the largest principal compressive stress being (sub-)parallel to the Earth's surface. In the present study we analyze the roughness ...

<p>Recent observations of large continental strike-slip earthquakes show that different fault segments may rupture at different speeds and that rupture may propagate faster than the shear wave velocity of surrounding rocks. It is reported in this article that ...

<p>Stylolites are rough surfaces that form by localized stress-induced dissolution. Using a set of limestone rock samples collected at different depths from a vertical section in Cirque de Navacelles (France), in this paper is studied the influence of the ...

<p>On the basis of experimental results, in this paper is proposed a new friction law aiming atdescribing the mechanical behavior of thick gouge layers. In the present paper, the objective is to derive an empirical friction law capable of accounting for this ...
