    Slip parameters on major thrusts at a convergent plate boundary: regional heterogeneity of potential slip distance at the shallow portion of the subducting plate

    Understanding variations of slip distance along major thrust systems at convergent margins is an important issue for evaluation of near-trench slip and the potential generation of large tsunamis. We derived qu...

    Difference of horizontal-to-vertical spectral ratios of observed earthquakes and microtremors and its application to S-wave velocity inversion based on the diffuse field concept

    We have been discussing the validity of using the horizontal-to-vertical spectral ratios (HVRs) as a substitute for S-wave amplifications after Nakamura first proposed the idea in 1989. So far a formula for HV...

    Application of a simplified calculation for full-wave microtremor H/V spectral ratio based on the diffuse field approximation to identify underground velocity structures

    Under the diffuse field approximation, the full-wave (FW) microtremor H/V spectral ratio (H/V) is modeled as the square root of the ratio of the sum of imaginary parts of the Green’s function of the horizontal co...

    Dynamics of a fault model with two mechanically different regions

    We consider a fault containing two regions with different mechanical behaviours: a strong, velocity-weakening region (asperity) and a weak, velocity-strengthening region. The fault is embedded in a shear zone ...
