Meeting in Tsukuba
Planning for the QuakeRecNankai 2015 field season is underway. Marc de Batist (Ghent University) and Vanessa Heyvaert (Geological Survey of Belgium) travelled to Tsukuba, home of the Active Fault and Earthquake Research Centre, to discuss plans for fieldwork on the Fuji Five Lakes and Lake Hamana with QRN collaborators Osamu Fujiwara (AIST), Yosuke Miyairi (University of Tokyo), Shinya Yamamoto (Mount Fuji Research Institute) and Stephen Obrochta (Akita University). The team will be back in the field this autumn to continue the search for evidence for past earthquakes and tsunamis along the Nankai Trough.
