Seismic evidence for thermal runaway during intermediate-depth earthquake rupture

Intermediate?depth earthquakes occur at depths where temperatures and pressures exceed those at which brittle failure is expected. There are two leading candidates for the physical mechanism behind these earthquakes: dehydration embrittlement and self?localizing thermal shear runaway. A complete ene...
