[HDS27-P14] Tsunami source model of M7 earthquakes occurred in the Sea of Japan
Keywords:tsunami source model, fault parameter, tsunami waveform analysis, eastern margin of the Sea of Japan
We analyzed the 1983 West off Aomori (Mjma 7.1), 1971 West off Sakhalin (Mjma 6.9), and 1964 off Oga Peninsula (Mjma 6.9) earthquakes. We made teleseicmic waveform inversion using Kikuchi and Kanamori (1991, BSSA)'s code to obtain the heterogeneous slip distribution. We then computed tsunami waveforms using JAGURS code (Baba et al., 2015, PAGEOPH) at the tide gauge stations and compared with the observed tsunami waveforms. The tsunami waveforms were also computed from simpler rectangular faults with uniform slips. For the 1971 earthquake (Mw 6.8) and the 1983 earthquake (Mw 6.7), the amplitudes of tsunami waveforms calculated from the heterogeneous slip model did not reproduce the observed tsunami waveforms; to match with the observed tsunami amplitudes, larger seismic moment and average slips are required. Furthermore, for all the earthquakes, we have to examine the locations and parameters of each fault to reproduce the travel times and the agreements between observed and calculated waveforms.
