The aim of this session is interdisciplinary, at the frontiers between Rock Mechanics, Seismology, Volcanology, Tectonics and Mineralogy. We invite studies related to the understanding of slow to fast fracturing and frictional processes in rocks, granular materials and/or laboratory analogs; studies on the role played by fluids, transient perturbations and mineralogy on earthquake triggering in shallow, deep and volcanic environments; studies on the earthquake source energy budget partitioning between fracture, friction and elastic wave radiation; experimental work performed at field scale on induced seismicity providing insights on earthquake hazard mitigation and/or constraining observed seismological statistical laws like Omori’s and Gutenberg-Richter’s; innovative techniques that take advantage of high-speed imaging and continuous acoustic emission streaming data.
