Abstract

Horizontal ground displacement associated with the 1995 Kobe earthquake reflects the developmental process of a block mountain under tectonic E-W compression. The focal mechanism of the earthquake is of the strike-slip type. Surface faults specify the block boundaries. Comparison of the tilting obtained from levelling of benchmarks with the dated marine terraces on one fault block yields a recurrence period of the earthquake of approximately 500 years. The result is in harmony with historical records for a series of earthquakes affecting the area concerned, including the 1995 earthquake
