Earth, Planets and Space welcomes submissions to the special issue on 'Kurile arc subduction zone: View of great earthquake generation and disaster mitigation of related phenomena'.
Various great earthquakes have historically occurred along the Kurile subduction zones. Geological studies including pre-historical tsunami researches also revealed that M9 class earthquakes occurred in this subduction zone. Various geophysical studies, including crustal deformation, gravity, seismic activity, crustal structure studies, or volcanic activities after the earthquake, were vigorously conducted to understand subduction processes along the Kurile arc. Not only those earthquake sciences, but also researches on disaster mitigation from those earthquake and tsunamis became important and were conducted by various disciplines. Now is the time to combine those interdisciplinary researches for better understanding of great earthquake generation processes and for mitigating disaster from those earthquakes and tsunamis.
This special issue covers all disciplines concerning earthquake generation process along the Kurile subduction zone and disaster mitigation of related phenomena, including:
・Geological evidences for great earthquakes and tsunamis.
・Crustal deformation or gravity variation.
・Structures in the subduction zone.
・Volcanic activities after great earthquakes
・Integrated modeling of earthquake generation
・Strong motions from great earthquakes
・Tsunami or strong motion early warning
Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have carefully read the submission Guidelines Earth, Planets and Space. The complete manuscript should be submitted through the Earth, Planets and Space submission system. To ensure that you submit to the correct special issue please select the appropriate special issue in the drop-down menu upon submission. In addition, indicate within your cover letter that you wish your manuscript to be considered as part of the special issue on 'Kurile arc subduction zone: View of great earthquake generation and disaster mitigation of related phenomena'. All submissions will undergo rigorous peer review and accepted articles will be published within the journal as a collection.
Deadline for submissions: 30 April 2020
