Research that complements each other's work has led James Dieterich and David Oglesby to answer big questions in the area of earthquake science as they individually study the physical processes that control earthquakes and the processes themselves. Why and when does an earthquake occur and how does it interact with other earthquakes in fault systems? Why do some earthquakes stop while others keep going? What causes some earthquakes to become large while others stay small? And how do these factors lead to the ground motion we experience on the surface of the earth?
