The March 25, 2020 MW 7.5 Paramushir earthquake

The strong earthquake with moment magnitude Mw = 7.5 occurred on March 25, 2020, in the North Kurils to the southeast of the Paramushir Island. The hypocenter of the earthquake was located under the

Illuminating a Contorted Slab With a Complex Intraslab Rupture Evolution During the 2021 Mw 7.3 East Cape, New Zealand Earthquake

The state‐of‐stress within subducting oceanic plates controls rupture processes of deep intraslab earthquakes. However, little is known about how the large‐scale plate geometry and the stress regime

Precise Monitoring of Pore Pressure at Boreholes Around Nankai Trough Toward Early Detecting Crustal Deformation

In our recent study, we detected the pore pressure change due to the slow slip event (SSE) in March 2020 at the two borehole stations (C0002 and C0010), where the other borehole (C0006) close to the



The 3 May 2006 (Mw 8.0) and 19 March 2009 (Mw 7.6) Tonga earthquakes: Intraslab compressional faulting below the megathrust

The Tonga subduction zone is among the most seismically active regions and has the highest plate convergence rate in the world. However, recorded thrust events confidently located on the plate

The 2011 Northern Kermadec earthquake doublet and subduction zone faulting interactions

A large intraslab earthquake doublet (6 July 2011, Mw 7.6; 21 October 2011, Mw 7.4) occurred in the Pacific plate beneath the outer trench slope of the northern Kermadec subduction zone, seaward of

The 2006–2007 Kuril Islands great earthquake sequence

The southwestern half of a ∼500 km long seismic gap in the central Kuril Island arc subduction zone experienced two great earthquakes with extensive preshock and aftershock sequences in late 2006 to

Intraplate and interplate faulting interactions during the August 31, 2012, Philippine Trench earthquake (Mw 7.6) sequence

On August 31, 2012, a large (Mw 7.6) thrust earthquake occurred within the subducting Philippine Sea plate seaward of a low seismicity region of the plate boundary (9.5°N–11.5°N), possibly as a

The 2009 Samoa–Tonga great earthquake triggered doublet

The earthquake sequence addressed here involves a rare instance in which a great trench-slope intraplate earthquake triggered extensive interplate faulting, reversing the typical pattern and broadly expanding the seismic and tsunami hazard.

Fault model of the 2012 doublet earthquake, near the up-dip end of the 2011 Tohoku-Oki earthquake, based on a near-field tsunami: implications for intraplate stress state

AbstractOn December 7, 2012, an earthquake occurred within the Pacific Plate near the Japan Trench, which was composed of deep reverse- and shallow normal-faulting subevents (Mw 7.2 and 7.1,

Temporal variation of large intraplate earthquakes in coupled subduction zones

Rupture‐Depth‐Varying Seismicity Patterns for Major and Great (Mw ≥ 7.0) Megathrust Earthquakes

Large earthquakes on subduction zone plate boundary megathrusts result from intervals of strain accumulation and release. The mechanism diversity and spatial distribution of moderate‐size aftershocks
