[SSS13-04] Seismogenic Layer within the Crust of Japanese Islands on the Japan Sea side using JUICE catalog
Keywords:Seismicity, Seismogenic layer, Crust, Hypocenter relocation
JUICE catalog contains relocated hypocenters for 12 years between 2001 and 2012 from the NIED Hi-net catalog (Depth ≤ 40km, 0.0 ≤ M). From the JUICE catalog, we extracted events with magnitude equal to or greater than 1.5 in order to satisfy Gutenberg-Richter magnitude-frequency relation. Then we estimated the D95 and D05 depths using the same method as Matsubara and Sato (2015).
The general pattern of our results is consistent with previous studies of D10 and D90 (e.g. Matsubara and Sato, 2015; Tanaka, 2004; Omuralieva et al., 2012). For example, deep D95 lies beneath the northern Hokkaido and northern Honshu and shallow D95 extends along the belt-like volcanic areas. In addition to this general profiles, we can find the local variability of D95 along the active faults. For instance, the northern part of the Kamishiro fault, in the northern Nagano prefecture, has D95 shallower than 15 km while southern part has D95 deeper than15km. Moreover, this study enables us to compare the seismogenic thickness and the actual crustal seismicity along the particular faults such as the 2014 North Nagano and the 2016 Central Tottori earthquakes. In our presentation, we will show the D95 and D05 depths on both general and local profile along the particular faults.
