3-min talk in an oral session
Keywords:GEONET, RTK-GNSS, real-time
GSI and Tohoku University have developed the Real-time GEONET Analysis System for Rapid Deformation Monitoring (REGARD) since September 2011 to estimate moment magnitudes (Mw) soon after large earthquakes struck. This system consists of three subsystems. First subsystem does real-time kinematic positioning using RTKLIB (Takasu, 2011) and GSILIB (GSI, 2015). Second one detects seismogenic behavior using the RAPiD algorithm (Ohta et al. 2012) or the Earthquake Early Warning (Kamigaichi et al. 2009) and immediately run the third subsystem. This subsystem estimates Mw within three minutes using displacement vectors of GEONET stations (Kawamoto, 2014). Finally, results are mailed to persons involved.
We tested this system in 2012, using 143 GEONET stations located in the Tohoku region. Last year, we expanded its function by using all the stations receiving 1-Hz streaming data covering almost all lands of Japan and enhanced its redundancy by carrying out two independent processing in parallel. In this year, we enhance real-time kinematic positioning by using QZSS and GLONASS as well as GPS. We also improve the browser used in the agency to search for previous results and visually recognize results of the real-time kinematic positioning.
In this presentation, we report the brief overview and the current situation of REGARD, including the accuracy enhancement and the browsing software.
