Earth, Planets and Space is calling for submissions to our Collection on Earthquake Swarm in the Northeastern Part of the Noto Peninsula.

Earthquake swarm activity has lasted since December 2020 in the northeastern part of the Noto Peninsula, where intense seismicity and crustal deformation have been observed by geophysical measurements. The 2023 M6.5 earthquake occurred in and around the earthquake swarm area, causing significant damage. Fluids appear to be an important factor controlling this long-lasting sequence. Elucidating its role in this swarm sequence is important for understanding the seismogenic processes in the crust. In addition, the relationship between the crustal activity, active faults, and crustal structures, in the area is still not clear. This special issue will focus on multidisciplinary geoscientific research in the areas of seismology, geodesy, geoelectromagnetism, geochemistry, geomorphology, and geology, regarding this crustal activity and associated phenomena.

This Collection supports and amplifies research related to SDG 11 and 15.
