Subduction processes such as accretion, back-arc-spreading, and arc-arc collisions have shaped the Japanese island arc. Recent advances in seismic imaging, both passive and controlled source, have produced new images of the crust-mantle structure under Japan and surrounding regions. Through the influence of pre-existing faults and rheological structures, these crust and mantle structures are exerting strong control on active tectonic processes like seismic activity and crustal deformation in the overriding plate. We seek contributions that document and/or model the deformation of the Japanese islands over a variety of time scales from the earthquake cycle to the tectonic evolution of the Japanese island arc, and from a range of research fields including seismology, geology, geochemistry, tectonic geomorphology, and geodynamics. Multidisciplinary studies are encouraged. We also welcome contributions in numerical or analogue geodynamical modeling that explore deformation processes.
