Earthquake nests as natural laboratories for the study of intermediate-depth earthquake mechanics

The physical mechanism of intermediate-depth earthquakes is still under debate. In contrast to conditions in the crust and shallow lithosphere, at temperatures and pressures corresponding to depths > 50 km, rocks ought to yield by creep or flow rather than brittle failure. Some physical process h...
