SUMMARY A high-resolution P-wave tomography of the crust and mantle down to 700 km depth beneath the Japan Islands is determined using a large number of high-quality arrival-time data from local earthquakes and teleseismic events simultaneously. The tomography shows that the Philippine Sea slab is subducting aseismically down to 430 km depth under southwest Japan, though the seismicity within the slab ends at 180 km depth. A low-velocity (low-V) zone in the mantle wedge under Tohoku and… CONTINUE READING
