Research output: Contribution to journalAbstract in journal


Glacial earthquakes are slow slip-events located under major outlet glaciers. These peculiar events were first discovered by Ekstrom et al in 2003 using teleseismic data and a global detection algorithm based on surface waves. The waveforms are consistent with a landslide-type focal mechanism, thus indicating that the seismological signals are linked to glacier movements.
