In the case of lacking the overlying sediments and cross-cutting relationships between the sediments and active faults, the fault activities were not identified clearly. In such case, the methodology of fault activity evaluation is needed to be improved. In our project commissioned by Secretariat of Nuclear Regulation Authority (S/NRA/R), we execute geological and geomorphological survey, geophysical survey, and borehole surveys along the Gomura fault zone ruptured during the 1927 Kita-Tango Earthquake and the Yamada fault zone located in the south of Gomura fault zone. Base on these surveys and its analysis, we organized these surveying technique and its applied condition for the evaluation of active fault, then we aimed for an establishment of the methodology for synthetic evaluation approach of active faults.
