[Frontier Letter] Detection of triggered shallow slips caused by large earthquakes using L-band SAR interferometry

Fujiwara et al. (2020) studied the distribution of crustal deformation caused by large earthquakes in detail using space-borne SAR interferometry and identified many displacement lineaments. Large earthquakes tend to trigger shallow slips on other surrounding pre-existing faults. Subsequently, these triggered shallow slips release accumulated strain, which in turn results in displacement lineaments. The occurrence of such passive faulting creates weak, mobile fault planes that repeatedly move at the same location. These triggered shallow slips bring diversity among active faults as a result.
