ICD-10:

Description:

When one tectonic passes under another, the amount of friction determines how severe an earthquake may be in the region. If there is little friction then there is little risk of an earthquake. If there is significant friction so that no sublimation occurs, then any sudden release of pent-up movement can result in an earthquake with deformation.
