Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Seismology
  • Plate tectonics
  • Subduction

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Seismology, Subduction, Intraplate earthquake, Plate tectonics and Interplate earthquake. As part of his studies on Seismology, he often connects relevant areas like Crust. His studies deal with areas such as Volcano, Plane, Petrology and Mantle as well as Crust.

Toru Matsuzawa studied Plate tectonics and Seismogram that intersect with Arc, P-wave and Geodesy. His work focuses on many connections between Interplate earthquake and other disciplines, such as Earthquake swarm, that overlap with his field of interest in Earthquake prediction. As a part of the same scientific study, Toru Matsuzawa usually deals with the Hypocenter, concentrating on Mantle wedge and frequently concerns with Magmatism.

His most cited work include:

  • Three‐dimensional structure of Vp, Vs, and Vp/Vs beneath northeastern Japan: Implications for arc magmatism and fluids (308 citations)
  • Repeating earthquakes and interplate aseismic slip in the northeastern Japan subduction zone (264 citations)
  • Upper mantle velocity structure estimated from PS- converted wave beneath the north-eastern Japan Arc (166 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Seismology, Subduction, Aftershock, Interplate earthquake and Plate tectonics. The concepts of his Seismology study are interwoven with issues in Slab and Crust. His Crust research incorporates elements of Volcano, Seismic velocity, Underplating, Mantle and Oceanic crust.

Many of his studies on Subduction involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Asperity. His study explores the link between Aftershock and topics such as Focal mechanism that cross with problems in Plane. His work carried out in the field of Interplate earthquake brings together such families of science as Seismic gap, Earthquake swarm and Episodic tremor and slip.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (90.05%)
  • Subduction (25.37%)
  • Aftershock (16.92%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Seismology (90.05%)
  • Aftershock (16.92%)
  • Stress field (3.48%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Seismology, Aftershock, Stress field, Fault and Bay. His study on Seismology is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Arc. His work deals with themes such as Range and Pacific Plate, which intersect with Arc.

His studies in Aftershock integrate themes in fields like Pore water pressure and Stress change. His Pore water pressure course of study focuses on Foreshock and Plate tectonics and Crust. His study looks at the relationship between Stress field and topics such as Differential stress, which overlap with Magnitude.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Heterogeneities in Stress and Strength in Tohoku and Its Relationship with Earthquake Sequences Triggered by the 2011 M9 Tohoku-Oki Earthquake (19 citations)
  • The 2018 Hokkaido Eastern Iburi earthquake ( M JMA = 6.7) was triggered by a strike-slip faulting in a stepover segment: insights from the aftershock distribution and the focal mechanism solution of the main shock (12 citations)
  • P-wave attenuation in the Pacific slab beneath northeastern Japan revealed by the spectral ratio of intraslab earthquakes (6 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Seismology
  • Plate tectonics
  • Subduction

Toru Matsuzawa mostly deals with Seismology, Aftershock, Induced seismicity, Fault and Intraplate earthquake. His Seismology study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Slab. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Aftershock, focusing on Focal mechanism and, on occasion, Magnitude and P-wave.

Toru Matsuzawa has included themes like Microseism, Stress field, Seismogram and Seismic velocity in his Induced seismicity study. His work investigates the relationship between Fault and topics such as Pore water pressure that intersect with problems in Crust and Plate tectonics. His Intraplate earthquake research focuses on Hypocenter and how it connects with Stress change, Earthquake swarm, Strike-slip tectonics and Island arc.
