[S-CG52] Intraslab and intraplate earthquakes
Tue. May 22, 2018 1:45 PM - 3:15 PM Poster Hall (International Exhibition Hall7, Makuhari Messe)
convener:Saeko Kita(International Institute of Seismology and Earthquake Engineering, BRI), Tomohiro Ohuchi(Geodynamics Research Center, Ehime University), Thomas P. Ferrand (東京大学地震研究所, 共同), Keishi Okazaki(Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology)
The purpose of this session is to share recent advances of geo-scientifical studies for intraslab (intraplate) earthquakes. We seek to formulate future directions of the interdisciplinary study of the occurrence of intermediate-depth intraslab earthquakes from the viewpoint of seismology, geodynamics and mineral physics. We welcome presentations from a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including seismology, seismotectonics, geodynamics, mineral and rock physics, other geophysics, geology, and numerical modeling. Studies for outer-rise earthquakes, shallow-depth intraplate earthquakes and deep earthquakes are also welcomed because it is important to know the characteristics of shallow-depth intraslab earthquakes and deep earthquakes for understanding for the generation process of intermediate-depth intraslab earthquakes.
