Observations at dense multiple sensors enable development of a new algorithm to predict ground motion directly from observed nearby ground motion, contributing to improved earthquake early warning. Development also includes establishing prediction models for long-period ground motion, evaluating ground motion from deep earthquakes, and upgrading observation systems to ensure reliable warnings.
Strong shaking is expected in the areas adjacent to the ones where strong shaking has already been observed. Red and orange indicate the areas that experienced the maximum seismic intensities of 5-lower or greater and 4, respectively. Green indicates the areas warned.
