The Noto-Hanto-Oki earthquake (MJMA=6.6) occurred NE off Noto Peninsula on February 7, 1993. According to JMA (Japan Meteorological Agency), the focal depth of this event was 25 km, which was deeper than most inland shallow events in Japan. There were distinct differences among the focal mechanisms obtained from the data of the P-wave initial motions, the long-period seismic waves, the short-period strong ground motions, and the tsunami waves. However, most of them indicated that the earthquake… CONTINUE READING
