Summary

Geodetic measurements made in this century demonstrate that modern movements correlate well with deformation that has occurred during the past 2 Ma. Both show effects of subduction and of the Quaternary collision of Izu Peninsula with Central Honshu. Westward from Suruga Bay, deformation is greatest near the coast, decreases markedly towards the uplifting Akaishi Mountains, and then increases again in the conjugate block-faulted terranes of Chubu district. Quaternary faults, historic earthquakes, and the distribution of horizontal shear since approx 1880 all reflect this deformation pattern. Since 1900 the W coast of Suruga Bay has undergone secular subsidence, horizontal contraction and tilting towards Suruga Trough, all typical of [...]
