From: A scenario for the generation process of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake based on dynamic rupture simulation: Role of stress concentration and thermal fluid pressurization

Fig. 1.

The flow diagram of this study. We construct a dynamic rupture model, based on an estimation of the stress changes before the Tohoku earthquake and the moment-rate function of the Tohoku earthquake in previous studies (Yoshida et al., 2011; Iio and Matsuzawa, 2012). Then we discuss a possible scenario for the occurrence of the Tohoku earthquake.
