[Frontier Letter] Occurrence of F region echoes for the polar cap SuperDARN radars

The quality of global-scale ionospheric plasma circulation maps provided by the SuperDARN radars depends strongly on the number of detected echoes. Over the last decade of relatively low solar activity, the best SuperDARN echo occurrence rates are in the polar cap. Koustov et al. (2019) show that SuperDARN radars in both the North and South hemispheres have similar patterns in echo occurrence over the daily, seasonal, and solar cycles. Many… Read more

[Frontier Letter] Structural heterogeneity in and around the fold-and-thrust belt of the Hidaka Collision zone, Hokkaido, Japan and its relationship to the aftershock activity of the 2018 Hokkaido Eastern Iburi Earthquake

The 2018 Hokkaido Eastern Iburi Earthquake (M=6.7) occurred at a very deep depth (~37 km) beneath the foreland fold-and-thrust belt of the Hidaka Collision Zone, Hokkaido, Japan. From the previously acquired controlled source seismic data, Iwasaki et al. (2019) revealed the detailed structure beneath this fold-and-thrust belt and its relationship with the aftershock activity of this earthquake. Relocated aftershocks are at depths of 7-45 km with steep geometry, extending to… Read more

[Frontier Letter] Temporal variations in discharge rate and component characteristics of tephra-fall deposits during the 2014–2015 eruption of Nakadake first crater, Aso Volcano, Japan

Miyabuchi and Hara (2019) present the distribution, discharged mass, and components of tephra-fall deposits to examine the sequence and characteristics of the 2014-2015 magmatic eruption at Nakadake first crater, Aso Volcano, SW Japan. Continuous monitoring of tephra deposits and visual observation of eruptive phenomena combined with geophysical observations, would provide new insights into magmatic and eruptive processes on small but long-lasting activities at Nakadake Volcano and other similar basaltic to… Read more
