Dynamic strain seismograms obtained by high-speed sampling include not only long-period changes, such as ‘strain-step’, step change in strain, but also short period variations, such as body waves. We studied dynamic strain variations caused by the 2004 off the Kii peninsula earthquakes. Using such strain seismograms, we clarified the relation between dynamic strain and velocity. Our results will contribute greatly to seismology. We also clarified the strain-step formation process. This result and the concept of dynamic strain will bring more information to geodetics.
