The slow spreading rate Charlie-Gibbs Atlantic transform fault slips in large (M~7) quasi-repeating earthquakes. The foreshocks, aftershocks, and unilateral rupture of the 2015 earthquake are similar to a 1974 earthquake on the same transform. The findings of this study are consistent with transform earthquakes starting small near the ridge and large slip asperities nearer to the transform center.
