[SCG70-03] Analyzing Strong Motion Generation Area of the MJMA 6.5 Earthquake Occurring Offshore the Kii Peninsula on April 1, 2016
Keywords:strong motion generation area, plate-boundary earthquake, Nankai trough
We collected from near-source strong motion data recorded by accelerometers at cabled sea-floor stations of Dense Oceanfloor Network system for Earthquake and Tsunamis (DONET1) jointly operated by NIED and JAMSTEC. We also collected records from Long Term Borehole Monitoring System (LTBMS) installed within accretionary prism underling the Kumano sedimentary basin at a depth of 904 m below the see floor at site C0002, which is operated by JAMSTEC. In addition to offshore stations, we collected strong motion data from velocity-type strong motion sensors (VSE-355G3) recorded at onshore broadband stations in the Kii peninsula belonging to the F-net of NIED and those recorded at a station in Shionomisaki installed by DPRI, Kyoto University.
Beside the MJMA 6.5 mainshock, there are several M3 class aftershocks on the day of the mainshock. Firstly, we analyzed source spectral ratio between the mainshock and an EGF event to obtain the corner frequencies and the source scaling parameters for both events. We referred to the relocated catalog by Wallace et al. (2016) for the hypocenters of the mainshock and aftershocks. Then, we estimated the source parameters of strong motion generation area (SMGA) of this event based on broadband strong motion modeling by the empirical Green’s function method (Irikura, 1986; Miyake et al., 2003) using both offshore and onshore strong motion stations. We will compare the source characteristics of this event with those from subduction-zone plate-boundary earthquakes in northeast Japan to discuss the regional difference in source characteristics in terms of strong motion generation from plate-boundary earthquakes.
