[SSS06-05] Frictional and Radiated Energy for the Shallow Fault
of the 2011 Tohoku-oki Earthquake
Keywords:Tohoku earthquake, radiated energy, frictional heat, JFAST
Comparing these results with estimates of the radiated energy, which are derived from teleseismic body waves, shows that the radiated energy is larger than the frictional heat for the shallow portion of the fault.
However, for the deeper portions of the fault, the frictional heat is larger. The shallow and deep portions of the megathrust have different proportions for the energy balance and, thus, different styles of faulting.
