Design and operation of a 1500-m laser strainmeter installed at an underground site in Kamioka, Japan

A laser strainmeter with a 1500-m baseline was constructed at an underground site in Kamioka, Gifu Prefecture, Japan, and has been operating since August 2016. The laser interferometer measures the change in distance between two retroreflectors housed in two vacuum chambers with a separation of 1500 m. The retroreflectors are fixed to the ground in the tunnel of the KAGRA gravitational wave telescope. A high-frequency-stabilized laser is used as a… Read more

The spatial distribution of earthquake stress rotations following large subduction zone earthquakes

Hardebeck (2017) explores the spatial distribution of stress rotations caused by great subduction zone earthquakes. These stress rotations imply that the earthquake stress drops are of similar magnitude to the background stress, consistent with low differential stress levels in subduction zones. The largest stress rotations are consistently found just above the Moho depth of the overriding plate, a depth range where large coherent slip patches are observed in great earthquakes, and where high fluid pressures have been imaged. Both of these processes could contribute to the low background stress levels. Click to view the article Read more
