Outline of the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquakes The first quake (foreshock) occurred on 14 April 2016 at 21:26 in Kumamoto Prefecture. The 2016 Kumamoto earthquake had a significant impact on groundwater levels and quality. We report here on spatial and temporal variations of seismic velocity around the seismogenic fault of the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake [moment magnitude ( M w) 7.0] based on ambient seismic noise. 2016 Kumamoto earthquake Focal Area by GSI ja.svg 700 × 700; 271 KB 2016 Kumamoto earthquake Mashiki-cho 06.JPG 3,264 × 2,448; 2.4 MB 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes (Magnitude).svg 618 × 515; 188 KB The stochastic finite-fault method based on a dynamic corner frequency has been applied to perform ground-motion simulations for the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake. IN THE CAUSE OF LIFE. 04/14/2016 9:26pm: The “foreshock” The epicenter was at 32°44.5′N, 130°48.5′E, at a depth of about 11 km below ground and the magnitude measured 6.5 (Mj). About 3,000 more were injured. Earthquakes exceeding JMA Seismic Intensity 6 lower occurred 7 times in three days since April 14. 1.1 Outline of the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquakes The first quake (foreshock) occurred on 14 April 2016 at 21:26 in Kumamoto Prefecture. Hence, this observation underscores the importance of continuously monitoring seismicity and surface deformation in order to understand the interplay between large earthquakes. The Nippon Foundation is actively engaged in supporting the reconstruction of damaged areas. Response to the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake. Overview of damage investigations conducted after the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake. The 2016 Kumamoto earthquake took place in a high-velocity and low-σ zone in the upper crust, which is surrounded and underlain by low-velocity and high-σ anomalies in the upper mantle. Kumamoto prefecture is located in the central of Kyushu district, western Japan, as shown in Fig. We retrospectively studied patients with ischemic stroke admitted to our hospital for 12weeks following the earthquake. The April 15, 2016 M 7.0 earthquake north of Kumamoto, on the island of Kyushu in southwest Japan, occurred as the result of strike-slip faulting at shallow depth. There are 53 high-quality KiK-net stations available in the Kyushu region, and we … Focal mechanisms for the earthquake indicate slip occurred on either a left-lateral fault striking to the northwest, or … 熊本地震 2016 ドローンで阿蘇大橋周辺を撮影した映像 Shooting around bridge Aso in Kumamoto earthquake drone - Duration: 7:29. beboyu 95,211 views Both registered 7 on the Japanese intensity scale and together they claimed 49 lives. I apply ionospheric correction to interferograms of ALOS-2/PALSAR-2. A series of major earthquakes beginning on April 14, 2016, with epicenters in Kumamoto Prefecture, inflicted major damage to a wide area of the island of Kyushu. Maximum magnitude was 7.3. A more powerful earthquake rocks the southern Japanese city of Kumamoto in the middle of the night, a day after an earlier tremor in the same area. The April 14, 2016 M 6.2 earthquake north of Kumamoto, on the island of Kyushu in southwest Japan, occurred as the result of strike-slip faulting at shallow depth. At Japan Platform (JPF), our response to the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake - or the magnitude-6.5 earthquake (the foreshock) at 9:26 p.m. on April 14, 2016, along with the magnitude-7.3 main shock at 1:25 a.m. on April 16 - began immediately after the foreshock with information gathering. Seismic activities has been increasing in Kumamoto Prefecture and Oita Prefecture, and landslides occurred in many places of the Minami … L-band SAR gives us high coherence enough to reveal surface deformation even in vegetated or mountainous area for pairs of images acquired more than 2 years. SUPPORT FOR DISASTER RECOVERY. In the study, researchers explained that following the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake in Japan, a large number of night aftershocks occurred.
