Interdisciplinary studies of the geology and mechanics of natural
and human‐induced earthquakes

 

With an average toll of 50.000 deaths per year over the last two decades, earthquakes are the most dreadful geohazard. However, we know little about earthquake mechanics. Here we propose an interdisciplinary approach which includes field studies of seismogenic faults, laboratory experiments and microanalytical investigations of both natural and experimental fault products to unravel the mechanics of natural and human-induced earthquakes.
