The Micro-Seismicity and Crustal Structure in the Northern Part of Hokkaido, Inferred from Temporal Observation

2003 Zisin (Journal of the Seismological Society of Japan 2nd ser )  
to November in 1998 combining eleven temporal seismic stations with seven and five routine ones operated by Institute of Seismology and Volcanology (ISV) in Hokkaido University and Sapporo Meteorological Observatory, Japan Meteorological Agency (SMO), respectively. Firstly we determined 91 hypocenters of local earthquakes in this period using the dense network. These hypocenters are about three times of the number of those from the routine network alone. One-dimensional P-wave velocity

The velocity of each layer was determined to be 2.83km/sec for the first layer, 5.32km/sec for the second one, 6.32km/sec for the third one and 6.69km/sec for the bottom half space. From the P-wave station corrections we obtained, this region can be classified into three zones parallel in the north-south direction; the western islands region in the Sea of Japan, the western part of mainland, and the eastern part of mainland. Each zone shows the Next, the hypocenters with the inverted velocity structure and the station corrections are relocated. As the results show, some hypocenters in the anomalous delayed station correction zone, i.
