[SGD02-P10] Post-seismic displacements of the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake by GNSS Campaign measurements
Keywords:the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake, GNSS Campaign measurements, post-seismic displacements
After the Kumamoto earthquake in April 2016, we remeasured the same line. The seismic activity was active during the observation, the tripod deviation did not occur except for some observation points (KM04, 2 mm). For the crustal deformation during the occurrence of the Kumamoto earthquake, crustal deformation of up to 50 cm was observed. Since the amount of displacement is relatively small near the Hinagu fault, it is known that the earthquake fault has not reached the ground surface, dislocation of the fault is within the Northern part of the Hinagu fault on the north side of the survey line, and the underground earthquake fault is close to the sea side by 1 to 2 km from the trace of the active fault which is confirmed on the ground. The middle and southern segments of the Hinagu fault in the southern part of the survey line also proved to be still not moving significantly in this activity.
After the occurrence of the Kumamoto earthquake, the post-seismic displacements is still very active, including the Hinagu fault, and the measurement of the same line for the purpose of investigating post-seismic displacements was conducted in early July 2016 and early July2017.
In addition, six observation points (KM13 to KM18) were set on the survey line (we called south line) of about 10 km in the northwest - southeast direction orthogonal to the Hinagu fault in Hachikawa town in Yatsushiro at the end of July 2016. We estimate post-seismic displacements from these data.
