Emergence in Earthquakes
Author(s): Didier Sornette

Subject(s): CX.02, CX.28

Category: Brief Article


We present a new theory of shallow earthquakes in which phase transformations allows the crust to store a fraction of the total released energy. These phase transformations also control the triggering nucleation phase. We briefly discuss consequences and comparisons with data.
