Japan quake model tackles earthquake occurrence probability


A new earthquake and tsunami model for Japan being developed by Impact Forecasting, the catastrophe modelling development centre of Aon Benfield, will differentiate itself from other models in the region in the way it tackles earthquake occurrence probability in the Nankai Trough, a submarine trough located south of the Nankaidō region of Japan’s island of Honshū.
