1997 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Seismology
  • Plate tectonics
  • Optics

Yoshio Fukao focuses on Seismology, Subduction, Geophysics, Slab and Mantle. His work on Amplitude expands to the thematically related Seismology. As part of one scientific family, Yoshio Fukao deals mainly with the area of Subduction, narrowing it down to issues related to the Fault, and often Neogene and South American Plate.

His studies in Geophysics integrate themes in fields like Rayleigh wave, Tiltmeter, Plate tectonics and Gravimeter. His Slab research incorporates themes from Slab window, Transition zone, Discontinuity and Seismic tomography, Tomography. He integrates Mantle and P wave in his studies.

His most cited work include:

  • Subducting slabs stagnant in the mantle transition zone (553 citations)
  • Stagnant slabs in the upper and lower mantle transition region (547 citations)
  • Subducted slabs stagnant above, penetrating through, and trapped below the 660 km discontinuity (258 citations)

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

His main research concerns Seismology, Geophysics, Mantle, Subduction and Slab. Yoshio Fukao has researched Seismology in several fields, including Seismic tomography, Seafloor spreading and Transition zone. His work in Geophysics addresses subjects such as Rayleigh wave, which are connected to disciplines such as Microseism.

His Mantle research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mantle plume, Superswell, Tomography, Seismogram and Hotspot. His Subduction study frequently links to other fields, such as Lithosphere. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Pacific Plate, Discontinuity, Slab suction and Slab window.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (70.37%)
  • Geophysics (27.51%)
  • Mantle (20.63%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2020)?

  • Seismology (70.37%)
  • Tsunami earthquake (6.88%)
  • Volcano (7.94%)

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

His primary areas of study are Seismology, Tsunami earthquake, Volcano, Infragravity wave and Caldera. His work carried out in the field of Seismology brings together such families of science as Plateau, Seafloor spreading, Geophysics and Broadband. Yoshio Fukao conducted interdisciplinary study in his works that combined Geophysics and Surface displacement.

His Tsunami earthquake study incorporates themes from Amplitude, Submarine pipeline, Bathymetry and Natural hazard. His work on Submarine volcano is typically connected to Mechanism as part of general Volcano study, connecting several disciplines of science. Yoshio Fukao focuses mostly in the field of Infragravity wave, narrowing it down to topics relating to Seasonality and, in certain cases, Pressure measurement, Geodesy, Gravity wave and Pacific ocean.

Between 2016 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Plume-stagnant slab-lithosphere interactions: Origin of the late Cenozoic intra-plate basalts on the East Eurasia margin (26 citations)
  • Ray Tracing for Dispersive Tsunamis and Source Amplitude Estimation Based on Green’s Law: Application to the 2015 Volcanic Tsunami Earthquake Near Torishima, South of Japan (12 citations)
  • Mechanism of the 2015 volcanic tsunami earthquake near Torishima, Japan. (9 citations)

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

  • Optics
  • Plate tectonics
  • Seismology

Yoshio Fukao mainly investigates Seismology, Caldera, Tsunami earthquake, Volcano and Subduction. His studies deal with areas such as Bouguer anomaly and Seismic tomography as well as Seismology. His research integrates issues of Submarine pipeline, Magnitude, Moment magnitude scale, Epicenter and Seafloor spreading in his study of Tsunami earthquake.

His Subduction study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Slab, Induced seismicity, Aftershock and Mantle. The various areas that he examines in his Slab study include Oceanic crust, Slab window, Compression, Transition zone and Pacific Plate. The Mantle study combines topics in areas such as Basalt and Lithosphere.
