Abstract

In this review of observations and hypotheses pertinent to earthquake occurence, emphasis is placed on major earthquakes at non-accretionary plate margins because these events account for nearly all seismically related slip. Among the more topical problems given at least brief mention are possible relationships between global seismicity and plate dynamics, stress drops and apparent stress from earthquakes, tectonic stress near plate margins and within the plates, and mechanical properties of the slip zone between the plates.
