Abstract

The Japanese islands are located at a quadruple junction of tectonic plates. Along these plate boundaries, a large number of earthquakes occur every year, supplied with energy by tectonic plate activity. Japan has a sophisticated seismological observatory network on land to estimate the location, magnitude, mechanism and other information about the earthquakes in support of research for earthquake procedures.
