Chile Earthquake Seismic Gap

One of the theories about earthquake occurrence over the years is that seismic gaps develop between major and great earthquakes, and are eventually filled.  With that in mind, it is interesting to plot the approximate slip planes for both the M8.8 earthquake of 27 February, 2010, and today's M8.2 earthquake of April 1, 2014.

I have discussed it recently with the writers at handmadewritings. We need to write a research paper nd have learned some theories about earthquake occurrence.

It is an interesting but tricky question.

I am looking forward to reading more articles on this topic at openhazards.
