Output of MEFISTO can be saved in stored frames using the frame_int variable. This records conditions on the subduction interface every <frame_int> steps (“int” meaning “interval”). So use a smaller number for a higher frame rate.

You can then make animations by contouring the “frame” variables (loc_frame for cell location, fluid_pressure_frame, etc.). Below are two examples. Check back soon for the code to produce .gifs.

You are viewing conditions on the subduction interface itself: simultaneous videos of slip deficit (left) and fluid pressure (right). Warmer or brighter colors are higher values.
