Weird,. I remember right before the Japan quake my internet went out. Was looking at seismographs,. Was like "holy cow" then blam, nothing.
Large earthquakes that hit places such as Japan seem to be preceded by subtle and silent deformation. Uchida et al. show that these “slow-slip events” are quasi-periodic in the megathrust zone in Japan. Slow-slip events occurred every 1 to 6 years and frequently were correlated with large earthquakes, including the great 2011 Tohoku-oki earthquake. The quasi-periodic behavior stretches back to at least 1930 and provides an important constraint for seismic hazard assessment in the region.
