Nankai Trough Seismogenic Zone Drilling and Observatory - IODP Proposal October 2001

In response to the first IODP call for proposals, a preliminary proposal for Seismogenic Zone Experiment drilling at the Nankai Trough was submitted to iSAS in October, 2001. The proposal, largely developed at a workshop held August 10-12, 2001 in Tokyo, was submitted by the 40 member Nankai Trough Seismogenic Zone Research Group. It outlines a program of both riser and non-riser drilling designed to characterize the plate boundary thrust and associated splay faults from seaward of the trench to the up-dip end of the seismogenic zone.
