Abstract

Generation of earthquakes has not been still understood. However, some statistical properties of seismicity are established such as magnitude-frequency distribution indicating power law. In this study, we numerically investigate one-dimensional spring-block earthquake model, considering self-affine fault surfaces, in order to understand such statistical properties.
