[SSS28-04] Seismicity of Kanto District for 400 years since 1615
Keywords:Depth of histrical Earthquake in Kanto District, 1921 Ryugasaki Earthquake, 1855 Ansei Edo Earthquake, 1856 Ansei Musashi Earthquake, 1887 Hadano Eaerthquake, 1924 Tanzawa Earthquake
There are only 15 events of shallow depth. 6 of them are caused by the liquid motion due to some volcanic activities. 4 of them occurred after the 2011 off Tohoku earthquake in the northeastern part of Kanto. Among remaining 5, 1633 Kanei Odawara and 1853 Kaei Odawara occurred in some shallow part of spray faults around the collision area of the Izu Peninsula. 1683 Tenwa Shimotsuke, and 1931 Western Saitama are rare shallow events in the crust. The rupture zone of 1887 M6.2 shallow Hadano earthquake extended in the east-west direction.
1856 Ansei Musashi remains depth undetermined. If the intensity distributions of various depth events are carefully compared, we realize the difficulty of the depth determination of historical events in Kanto district with limited materials.
The research was done by the contract of MEXT in addition to the priority research project on Tachikawa Fault.
