The G-GAP project aims at studying the seismic cycle in the Guerrero subduction zone. The project includes a strong collaboration between Mexican researchers from UNAM and French researchers from Université Grenoble Alpes, Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris and Université de Strasbourg. The project is devoted to the analysis of recently discovered slow slip events for which Guerrero (Mexico) is an exceptionally favorable place of study. Non-volcanic tremors are also observed and could bring new insights on the mechanical behavior of the subduction. As part of the project, seismic antennae have been installed to complete the already existing Mexican networks. The other part of the project concerns the tectonics of central Mexico, with its associated seismic hazards, and a study of the important strong motion data available in the region in terms of ground motion predictive equations. G-GAP has benefited from a 4 year grant (Jan. 2009 - Dec. 2012) from the French agency ANR.
