[SVC45-P21] Temporary dense seismic observation in Hachijojima Island
Keywords:Hachijojima Island, Temporary dense seismic observation, hypocenter distribution
From the above background, Tokyo Metropolitan University is engaged in imaging of volcanic structure beneath Hachijojima Island as part of research project on volcanic disaster mitigation.Temporary dense seismic observation was performed to obtain volcanic structure with enough resolution. We have installed 45 seismographs in Hachijojima Island, mainly around Nishiyama, and 1 seismograph in Hachijokojima. Total number of seismic stations was 46.The observation period was approximately seven months from September 2019 to March 2020. The seismometer we used was a 1 Hz velocity type seismograph (LE-3DLite MkIII) and off-line type data recorder (GSX) for continuous recording at a sampling frequency of 250 Hz.
By this Temporary observation, in addition to earthquakes listed in JMA hypocenter bulletin, it was possible to detect earthquakes that could not be determined from the conventional seismic network.
In this paper, we introduce the outline of the temporary dense seismic observation and preliminary results of the hypocenter determination.
