Predictive Simulation for Crustal Activity in and around Japan Group Representative



Japanese Islands are in a very complex tectonic setting. In the northeastern part the Pacific plate is descending beneath the North American plate, in the southwestern part the Philippine Sea plate is descending beneath the Eurasian plate, and in the central Kanto area these four plates are interacting with each other in a very complicated way. Interaction between the oceanic and the continental plates at subduction zones produces the periodic occurrence of large earthquakes, coseismic, postseismic and interseismic crustal movements, and long-term crustal deformation of the island arc-trench system. The aim of our program (CAMP: Crustal Activity Modelling Program) is to develop a physics-based predictive computer simulation system for the long-term crustal deformation and the entire earthquake generation cycles in and around Japan
