  The Japan Trench is a highly seismogenic subduction zone and has produced many large earthquakes, including the M w 9 Tohoku-oki earthquake that generated a devastating tsunami. The megathrust moves primarily in a stick-slip manner, although various parts of it exhibit creep accompanied with small repeating earthquakes (7).Cited by: Assuming that the seismogenic zone coincides with the distribution of ≤ M.

The Seismogenic Zone of Subduction Thrust Faults Book Summary: Subduction zones, one of the three types of plate boundaries, return Earth's surface to its deep interior. Because subduction zones are gently inclined at shallow depths and depress Earth's temperature gradient, they have the largest seismogenic area of any plate boundary. Subduction thrusts exhumed from seismogenic depths may record the dynamic slip processes during subduction zone earthquakes. The thrust faults in the Shimanto accretionary complex of southwest.

  Subduction zones produce the largest earthquakes. Over the past two decades, space geodesy has revolutionized our view of crustal deformation between Cited by: Dietrich. Roeder, in Regional Geology and Tectonics: Principles of Geologic Analysis, Wedge traction. Subduction causes horizontal compression across the plate boundary and shear along its incline. In the shallow zone of crustal interface, or seismogenic coupling, 50– km wide, the descending (subducting) slab dips at 10°, and its seismicity suggests shear tractions of – MPa.

Because subduction zones are gently inclined at shallow depths and depress Earth's temperature gradient, they have the largest seismogenic area of any plate boundary.

Consequently, subduction zones generate Earth's largest earthquakes and most destructive tsunamis. While scientists have a general understanding of the seismogenic zone, many critical details remain obscure.
