Project Abstract
INTERIM REPORT: Current progress: (1) completed new analysis of stress drop estimates of the 2012 swarm and Ridgecrest foreshocks. (2) preliminary analysis of foreshock stress interactions and spatiotemporal migration pattern. To do: synthesize three foreshock sequences to understand the differences and similarities between different types of sequences, and discuss the roles of "cascading failure" and "aseismic processes" in the triggering process. Anticipated completion date: fall 2021.
