[MIS11-P11] Geological evidence for tsunamis and earthquakes from Lake Hamana and Fuji Five Lakes
Keywords:Tsunami deposit, paleo-earthquake, Lake Hamana, Fuji Five Lakes
We obtained pilot gravity cores form Lake Hamana and the Fuji lakes Motosu, Sai, Kawaguchi, and Yamanaka in 2014. In order to image the lateral changes of the event deposits, we also conducted reflection-seismic survey. Based on these results, potential coring sites were determined and then 3–10 m long piston cores were recovered from several sites in each lake in 2015. The cores consist of 2 m long sections with 1 m overlaps between the sections allowing us to reconstruct continuous records of tsunamis and paleo-earthquakes. In this presentation we introduce the progress of QuakeRecNankai project and discuss the potential of the lakes as Late Pleistocene and Holocene archives of tsunamis and paleo-earthquakes.
