A family of repeating low-frequency earthquakes at the downdip edge of tremor and slip

pp 3713-3721

DOI: 10.1002/2014GC0054049

The 9000 low‐frequency earthquakes mostly locate within a circle of 300 m radius. 

LFEs cluster into swarms during which amplitudes systematically increase. 

Observed LFE moments yield only up to 20% of predicted slip.
