Scientists discover evidence of super-fast deep earthquake

from Geology Times

As scientists learn more about earthquakes that rupture at fault zones near the planet's surface — and the mechanisms that trigger them — an even more intriguing earthquake mystery lies deeper in the planet. Scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have discovered the first evidence that deep earthquakes, those breaking at more than 400 kilometers (250 miles) below Earth's surface, can rupture much faster than ordinary earthquakes. The finding gives seismologists new clues about the forces behind deep earthquakes as well as fast-breaking earthquakes that strike near the surface. more
