earthquakes. In contrast to the common notion, these dip-slip faults showed hitherto unexplained differences in the direction and velocity of the coseismic and postseismic surface movements parallel to the fault trace. Using three-dimensional numerical models, Andrea Hampel and colleagues demonstrate that the observed contrasting fault-parallel slip patterns are characteristic features of the two different fault types and that they are also evident in field data of coseismic and long-term cumulative fault slip. During the postseismic phase, viscous flow in the lower crust induces fault-parallel surface displacements, which have the same direction as the coseismic displacements but are distributed over a much larger area. In order to detect this signal, future studies require GPS stations to be placed in the prolongation of the fault trace, in addition to those positioned near the fault.


Delamination in the Betic Range: Deep structure, seismicity, and GPS motion
Flor de Lis Mancilla et al., Instituto Andaluz de Geofsica, Universidad de Granada, 18071-Granada, Spain. Posted online 17 Jan. 2013; http://dx.doi.org/10.1130/G33733.1.

A significant portion of Earth's lithosphere is recycled into the deeper mantle. The two principal mechanisms for recycling are subduction and delamination. While the areas where subduction processes are taking place are well recognize and its mechanisms well understood, delamination processes are not completely revealed mainly because they are more difficult to detect. In this study, Flor de Lis Mancilla and colleagues provide important evidence of crustal delamination in the Western Mediterranean region from different datasets. The whole underthrusted Iberia crust is delaminated beneath part of the Betic mountain range, still connected to the foreland lithosphere on one side, and displaced along a tear fault along the other side.
