    Article published on oceanic transform faults

    An article on the role of seawater infiltration for oceanic transform fault seismicity has been published in the latest issue of Nature Geoscience. Oceanic transform faults are a major category of plate-bounding faults that cross-cut the mid-ocean ridge system. This study by Arjun Kohli, Monica Wolfson-Schwehr, Cecile Prigent, and Jessica Warren incorporates seawater hydration into […]
