Abstract: Large to great earthquakes (M > 7) show numerous complexities when they are imaged in detail. For example, earthquakes often rupture multiple faults and may contain a number of large subevents. The fault systems hosting these earthquakes are mostly in plate-boundary regions and they often interact with each other. These complexities challenge traditional source imaging approaches, such as finite-fault or moment-tensor inversions. In contrast, back-projection has proven effective in resolving the detailed spatiotemporal evolution of large earthquakes because the method requires few prior assumptions, although care must be taken to avoid imaging artifacts.  The superior spatial resolution of global array back-projection enables investigation of frequency-dependent rupture and detection of both subevents and early aftershocks.  I will discuss large earthquake kinematics and their near-instantaneously triggered aftershocks that are revealed by the global back-projection method.
