So-called “loam” composed of primary fall-out tephras and tephric soil deposits (tephric loess) is one of the factors cause earthquake-induced landslide. To evaluate potential of slope failure by this combination in the Japanese Island, earthquake-induced landslides potential assessment should be examined in relevant areas, considering frequency of landslides in geological time. To estimate this, we examined unconformities within “loam” on the Izu-oshima Island, Tokyo, where thick loam has been formed during last 19 ka. We identified at a maximum six unconformities suggesting possibility of occurrences of landslides during the period between 19-1.8 ka.
