(Latin: after, behind, later, subsequent)
2. Added in a postscript.
2. Frictional afterslip or deformation following a seismic event.
After a large earthquake, postseismic deformation may result from earthquake-induced slip along the plate interface, commonly referred to as "afterslip", and as viscoelastic relaxation in the volume surrounding the fault rupture.
The well-positioned postseismic observations can probe the mechanical properties of subduction megathrusts and the media that surround them.
One of Martial's epigrams which is also translated as, "If one must die to be recognized, I can wait."
