# A fault model of the 1995 Kobe earthquake derived from the GPS data on the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge and other datasets

@article{Koketsu1998AFM, title={A fault model of the 1995 Kobe earthquake derived from the GPS data on the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge and other datasets}, author={K. Koketsu and S. Yoshida and H. Higashihara}, journal={Earth, Planets and Space}, year={1998}, volume={50}, pages={803-811} }

Co-seismic horizontal displacements, which have been obtained from recently released GPS observations on the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge, are examined for their consistency with displacements observed in the vicinity of the bridge. An E18.7°S displacement of 25.0 cm should be removed from them. The adjusted data indicate an additional fault segment beneath Akashi Strait. We construct a new fault model by adding this segment to a model assumed previously. We then recover the slip distribution over the… Expand
