Unearthing the underground effects of earthquakes and volcanoes

(Kyushu University, I2CNER) Kyushu University (Japan) researchers analyzed high-resolution seismic velocity data from 36 seismograph stations across the island of Kyushu to identify variations before, during, and after the MW 7.0 2016 Kumamoto earthquake. Velocity decreased in the region of the rupture fault when the earthquake struck, and then gradually recovered, although this recovery showed spatial variability.
