[SCG52-P02] Waveform Similarity of Deep Earthquakes in the Subducting Pacific Slab Beneath Japan
First, we relocated hypocenters with differential travel-time data derived from waveform cross correlations to constrain hypocenter locations with much higher accuracy. Then we found that there were a few seismic clusters with similar waveforms. In the next step, we determined their focal mechanism solutions and calculated their correlation coefficient to evaluate waveform similarity. We focused on several earthquakes showing high correlation coefficient (>0.8) of observed waveforms. We will present detailed hypocenter distributions together with focal mechanism solutions, and discuss their similarities of waveforms.
