[MIS34-P39] Groups of Surface Faults with Small Displacement of the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake Detected by ALOS-2 SAR Interferometry
Keywords:2016 Kumamoto earthquake, SAR interferometry, Fault
More than 200 lineaments are found and the position of some lineaments coincides with known active faults, such as the Futagawa fault zone, the Hinagu fault zone and other minor faults, however the number of the lineaments were much more than that of the known active faults. In each area, the lineaments have similar direction and motion each other, then they can be classified into several groups of faults. Since the direction of the lineaments coincides with that of the known active faults or that of their conjugate faults, the cause of the lineaments was related with the tectonic field of this region.
The lineaments are classified into the following several categories; (a) the main earthquake faults and their branched sub-faults, (b) earthquake faults which are not directly related to the main earthquake, (c) landslides and/or creep along geologically weak surfaces caused by the strong earthquake motion.
