The QuakeRecNankai project: reconstructing past earthquakes and tsunamis along the Nankai Trough, south central Japan

In: 4th International Tsunami Field Symposium, Phuket, Thailand.

The Nankai-Suruga subduction zone faces the densely populated and highly industrialised coastline of south central Japan. The largest possible class of earthquake on the subduction interface could exceed magnitude 9, with tsunami travel times to the closest shorelines of less than 30 minutes. In this presentation, we review geological evidence for past earthquakes and tsunamis in this region and introduce the QuakeRecNankai project, a Belgian, Japanese and German collaboration that aims to reconstruct past seismic shaking and tsunami occurrence from Lake Hamana and the Fuji Five Lakes at the eastern end of the Nankai Trough.
