Spatio-temporal organization of correlated local activity within global avalanches in slowly driven interfaces


We study the jerky response of slowly driven fronts in disordered media, just above the depinning transition. We focus on how spatially disconnected clusters of internally correlated activity lead to large-scale velocity fluctuations in the form of global avalanches, and identify three different ways in which local activity clusters may organize within a global avalanche, depending on distance to criticality. Our analysis provides new scaling relations between the power-law exponents of the statistical distributions of sizes and durations of local bursts and global avalanches. Fluid fronts of imbibition in heterogeneous media are taken as a case study to validate these scaling relations
