  1. Abstract Either the triggering of large earthquakes on a fault hosting aseismic slip or the triggering of slow slip events (SSE) by passing seismic waves involve seismological questions with important hazard implications. Just a few observations plausibly suggest that such interactions actually happen in nature. In this study we show that three recent devastating earthquakes in Mexico are likely related to SSEs, describing a cascade of events interacting with each other on a regional scale via quasi-static and/or dynamic perturbations across the states of Guerrero and Oaxaca. Such interaction seems to be conditioned by the transient memory of Earth materialsmore »subject to the “traumatic” stress produced by seismic waves of the great 2017 (Mw8.2) Tehuantepec earthquake, which strongly disturbed the SSE cycles over a 650 km long segment of the subduction plate interface. Our results imply that seismic hazard in large populated areas is a short-term evolving function of seismotectonic processes that are often observable.« less

  2. The University of Dayton and Central State University are engaged in a new collaborative NSF Research Experience for Teachers project that has an emphasis on international engineering research focused on human-centered design and appropriate technology for developing countries. This three year project will engage 36 G6-12 in-service and pre-service teachers in a variety of engineering research opportunities through the University of Dayton’s Engineers in Technical Humanitarian Opportunities for Service-Learning (ETHOS) Center which focuses on engineering and community engaged learning. This paper will summarize the project, present observations from the spring participant sessions, and discuss the unique opportunities and challenges associatedmore »with involving teachers in international community engaged learning.« less
