Triggering of Earthquakes by Earthquakes
There is no doubt that a strong earthquake triggers a large number of aftershocks near the epicenter. This is a manifestation of the release of tectonic energy and the process of stress relaxation. However, it is debatable that strong shocks at one location can trigger earthquakes at remote location at a distance some several times greater than the source size.
