IODP Exp. 405: Japan Trench Tsunamigenesis(JTRACK) conducted by D/V Chikyu will be held from Sep to Dec, 2024.
IODP Exp.405 JTRACK will drill into the Japan Trench subduction zone with the goal of finding out what controls shallow slip during great earthquakes. Exp. 405 will visit two sites; one in a transect across the trench from undisturbed sedimentary rocks on the incoming Pacific Plate (JTCT-02A); the second, in a site that will access the fault zone in the region of large, shallow slip observed during the 2011 Tohoku-oki earthquake (JTCT-01A).
