[SCG61-07] Current status of K-NET
Keywords:K-NET, Strong motion seismographs, Continuous monitoring of strong motion, Earthquake damage estimation, Earthquake early warning
NIED started a feasibility study for continuous monitoring of strong motion. As a part of this study, NIED had added new functions for continuous calculations and transmissions of strong motion to seismographs at observatories in Kanto and Tokai areas. Continuous monitoring of strong motion is useful for research and development of "Earthquake area alarm" (Nakamura et al, 2014). Also continuous transmissions are useful for robust recording of strong motion data.
In this presentation we will introduce current status of K-NET, focusing on K-NET11/11A seismographs and new observation system.
