It was sometimes called Doshū ( … Hyodo and Hori, 2013) approaches. Age estimation followed the procedure of Lienkaemper and Bronk Ramsey (2009). BP for T2 (Figure 5, Table 3), and we inferred the depositional age of Sand 2 to be 4560–3730 cal. Constrained ages were 3410–2760 cal. BP. In fact, these dogs come from the Tosa Province, so the dog was named after the region where they were bred. We prepared peels from some cores and geoslices, using a hydrophilic grout (e.g. BP were probably narrower and lower than the present ones, thus the study site was more easily inundated than today. BP, a gap that we attribute to the development of beach ridges. We identified and counted more than 300 valves except in samples where the concentration of diatoms was low, in which we counted at least 100 valves. Many people were killed by collapsing houses. Furthermore, information on rupture areas is crucial for evaluating the magnitudes of paleoearthquakes. The Nankoku study site is a small, coastal lowland surrounded by hills about 70–160 m high, composed mainly of Cretaceous sandstone and mudstone, that isolate this lowland from the alluvial plain of the Monobe River (Figure 1c). Although upward fining from coarse to medium sand was observed in Sand 1a at T8, there were few sedimentary structures in Sand 1. Units 2 and 3 were found at all sites. The dates of many events have been estimated by radiocarbon ages obtained from within the washover deposits.

Moreover, we argue below that the beach ridges existing in 5970–2440 cal. Unit 1 is composed of sand and gravel. Ishibashi, 2004). Beautiful detail in the rolling waters, breaking against the hulls of the fishing boats. BP (Table 3 and Figure 4). The ages of event deposits were constrained using Bayesian statistics in the radiocarbon calibration program OxCal 4.2 (Bronk Ramsey, 2009) with the IntCal13 radiocarbon calibration dataset (Reimer et al., 2013). Southeast of Muroto (Figure 1b; location 5), a seafloor core was found to contain 31 turbidites dating from the last 7000 years that were interpreted as the product of turbidity currents triggered by megathrust and offshore fault earthquakes (Iwai et al., 2004). Plant macrofossils, obtained from above and below the sand sheets for radiocarbon dating (Table 1), included fruits of floating leaved plants such as Trapa spp. Sand 4, composed of fine to medium sand, was up to 1 cm thick at T1 and patchy at T2 and T3 (Figures 3c, 4, S1, and S2), about 900 m inland from the present shoreline (Figure 1). Further geological studies in adjacent areas are necessary to establish the coseismic displacement. Although the other two sand sheets contain few marine-brackish diatoms, the presence of few marine-brackish diatoms does not always rule out a marine origin. The email address and/or password entered does not match our records, please check and try again. Diatom assemblages in Sand 2, 3, and 4 were similar to those in the surrounding clay and peat in Unit 3. Radiocarbon ages from cores T1, T2, T3, T4, T7, and T8. [3] Emergency planners are anticipating and preparing for potential scenarios after such an earthquake, including the possibility of thousands of deaths and hundreds of thousands of injuries, millions of damaged buildings, and cities that include Nagoya and Shizuoka devastated. Constrained ages were 3700–3490 cal. We recognized four sand sheets interbedded with clay and peat in the coastal deposit (Figure 3). 例文検索の条件設定 「カテゴリ」「情報源」を複数指定しての検索が可能になりました。( プレミアム会員 限定) すべての情報源 総合的な情報源 研究社 新英和中辞典 (1) 研究社 新和英中辞典 (2) Weblio Email例文集 (3) Weblio英語 We propose two depositional ages for Sand 1 (Figure 5, Table 3). 20 m high at Tanezaki, Tosa, 6.58 at Muroto. The tsunami associated with the 1361 Ko’an (Shohei) earthquake inundated an alluvial plain of the Monobe River (). [1] It was sometimes called Doshū (土州) . BP for T1 and 3700–3570 cal. The Tosa is a rare dog breed and unfortunately, the dog is still used in Japan for dogfighting. The city was founded on January 1, 1959. By using limiting maximum and minimum ages derived from plant macrofossils, we provide more precise age constraints of paleo events than these studies. However, there have been no geomorphological studies of beach ridges along the coast of Kochi Prefecture. TAMBIÉN TE PUEDE INTERESAR. A pond in Tosa (Figure 1b; location 3) contained six washover deposits from the last 2000 years, some of which have been correlated with the 684 Hakuho, 1361 Ko’an (Shohei), 1707 Hoei, and 1854 Ansei earthquakes (Okamura et al., 1997, 2000; Tsukuda et al., 1999). The most abundant species, P. elegans, is common on salt marshes, and D. smithii and P. marina are common on tidal flats (Chiba and Sawai, 2014; Witkowski et al., 2000). Lithofacies profile with radiocarbon ages, photograph of a peel, and fossil diatom assemblages of the geoslice at T1. 日本遺産に関する情報を掲載したポータルサイトです。Japanese tangible and intangible cultural properties/assets, i.e. Dr Adam Switzer and an anonymous reviewer provided constructive reviews that substantially improved the manuscript. Individual turbidites were correlated with historical earthquakes, including the 1099 Kowa, 1361 Ko’an (Shohei), and 1498 Meio events, on the basis of an age–depth curve. Damages in Tosa province from the 887 Nin’na and 1498 Meio earthquakes were not recorded. It is why they are sometimes referred to as Japanese Mastiffs. The basal contact is sharp at T1, T3, T7, and T8. December 1600 or January 1601: He became the feudal lord of Tosa Province, with 98,000 koku (later surveyed as 202,600 koku). Because, in historic time, the inner coast of Tosa Bay including the study site has repeatedly undergone coseismic subsidence (Table 1). the site you are agreeing to our use of cookies. We also collected three large samples ~4 m long and 40 cm wide by using a geoslicer system (Nakata and Shimazaki, 1997) at sites T1, T7, and T8. BP, four events in 3500 years, is much lower than the historical tsunamigenic earthquake record along the Nankai Trough. The apparent frequency of marine inundations during 5970–2440 cal. Third, Sand 1 and 2 contain a few marine-brackish diatoms. Concern has been expressed over the presence of the Hamaoka Nuclear Power Plant, close to the expected epicentre of a Tōkai earthquake. BP. We obtained nine sediment cores ~9 cm in diameter and up to 8 m long at sites T1–T9 (Figure 1c). Lean Library can solve it. Login failed. Tossa de Mar (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈtosə ðə ˈmaɾ]) is a municipality in Catalonia, Spain, located on the coastal Costa Brava, about 103 kilometres north of Barcelona and 100 kilometres south of the French border.It is accessible through Girona Airport, some distance north. Event deposits were absent between 2440 and 960 cal. Figure 3. Estimates of ages of Sand 1, 2, 3, and 4. However, liquefaction is likely to be inappropriate for the origins of them. In addition to megathrust earthquakes, a far-field tsunami associated with the 1960 Chile earthquake was also recorded on the coast of Kochi Prefecture (Watanabe, 1998) (Table 1). The history of earthquakes and tsunamis along the Nankai-Suruga Trough, where the Philippine Sea plate is subducting beneath southwestern Japan, has been studied by using historical (e.g. Ishibashi, 1999), archaeological (e.g. Tosa Province (土佐国, Tosa no kuni) was an old province of Japan in the area of Kōchi Prefecture on the island of Shikoku. Ishibashi, 2004, 2014). Although Unit 3 probably continued to accumulate after 1.0 cal. Many events have been interpreted as rupturing one or two adjacent seismogenic segments based on historical, archaeological, geological, and geomorphological studies, but the record is far from complete (e.g. Please check you selected the correct society from the list and entered the user name and password you use to log in to your society website. FundingThis study was supported by funding from the ‘Research Project for Compound Disaster Mitigation on the Great Earthquakes and Tsunamis around the Nankai Trough Region’ by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports and Technology of Japan. Marine-brackish diatoms made up more than 80% of the specimens counted. Geological evidence of tsunamis has been studied at coastal ponds in Kochi Prefecture. BP were unpublished), and the youngest of these was correlated with the 684 Hakuho earthquake (Okamura et al., 1997, 2000; Tsukuda et al., 1999). Woodblock print (reprint) (2) - Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) - Iyo Province: Saijô (Iyo, Saijô) en Tosa Province: Bonito Fishing at Sea (Tosa, Kaijô katsuo tsuri) - Japan - end 19th century. These earthquakes repeat at intervals generally in the range of 90 – 200 years. By continuing to browse It was sometimes called Doshū ( 土州 ) . It was sometimes called Doshū (土州?. First, the study site is a small, isolated lowland fed by small streams that are incapable of producing large floods (Figure 1c). Sand 2, 3, and 4 were correlated based on their depositional ages. This diatom composition suggests that eroded terrestrial deposit has been incorporated into Sand 1. Radiocarbon ages of plant macrofossils show that Unit 3 was deposited between 5.0 and 1.0 cal. Takada and Atwater, 2004). For more information view the SAGE Journals Sharing page. These facts indicate that tsunamis were more likely to form sandy event deposits than usual storms. We correlated a sand sheet along the contact between Units 2 and 3 based on their stratigraphic position. Tosa Province (土佐国, Tosa no kuni) is a former province of Japan in the area that is today Kōchi Prefecture on Shikoku. If storm surges had left the washover deposits in the studied lowland, much more sand sheets might be found within Unit 3. The quake itself would likely kill thousands, and a series of 34-meter (112-foot) tall tsunamis would impact areas from the Kantō region to Kyūshū, adding thousands to the death toll, and destroying Shizuoka, Shikoku, and other areas with large populations.[4][5].

Diatom assemblages in the uppermost part of Unit 2, below Sand 1, were dominated by benthic marine-brackish species that are common in salt marshes and tidal flats (Chiba and Sawai, 2014; Witkowski et al., 2000) and indicate that the sediment accumulated in the intertidal zone. BP (Figure 3c, Table 3). It has plentiful woods, making it a good place for shipbuilding. View or download all the content the society has access to. Diatom assemblages in the lower part of Unit 3, above Sand 1, were dominated by freshwater species, such as the planktonic Aulacoseira spp., that are typical in freshwater ponds and swamps (Chiba and Sawai, 2014), and abundant fruits of floating leaved plants and emergent plants, all indicative of freshwater ponds and/or swamps. Iyo Province: Saijô (Iyo, Saijô), from the series Famous Places in the Sixty-odd Provinces [of Japan] ([Dai Nihon] Rokujûyoshû meisho zue) Good condition, backing, see photos. BP. Some society journals require you to create a personal profile, then activate your society account, You are adding the following journals to your email alerts, Did you struggle to get access to this article? The lower part of Unit 3 was dominated by freshwater species such as Aulacoseira spp., Fragilariforma exigua, Puncticulata praetermissa, Staurosira construens, Staurosirella pinnata, and Tabellaria spp., as well as a few freshwater-brackish (tolerates low salinity) species such as Pseudostaurosira brevistriata. We attribute this change in sedimentary facies and environment to the isolation of tidal flats and salt marshes from the Pacific Ocean and their subsequent desalination during 5510–4870 cal. Anomalous sand sheets within sediments typical of low-energy environments are commonly attributed to extreme waves including tsunamis, storm surges, and floods. After the 1707 Hoei earthquake, which ruptured the entire length of the Nankai-Suruga Trough plate interface (Figure 2), tsunami heights exceeding 5 m were recorded in many coastal areas of Kochi Prefecture. BP for T3 (Figure 5, Table 3), and we inferred the depositional age of Sand 3 to be 3700–3490 cal. and Schoenoplectus spp. The post-depositional changes of the onshore 2004 tsunami deposits on the Andaman Sea coast of Thailand, Sediment sources and sedimentation processes of 2011 Tohoku-oki tsunami deposits on the Sendai Plain, Japan – Insights from diatoms, nannoliths and grain size distribution, Evidence for liquefaction identified in peeled slices of Holocene deposits along the lower Columbia River, Washington, Deposition by the 2011 Tohoku-oki tsunami on coastal lowland controlled by beach ridges near Sendai, Japan, Diatom assemblages within tsunami deposit from the 2011 Tohoku-oki earthquake along the Misawa coast, Aomori Prefecture, northern Japan, Heights of the tsunami of the 1361 Shohei Nankai earthquake at Yuki, Tokushima prefecture and at Shokoji Temple in Nankoku City, Kochi prefecture, Earthquakes of recent 2000 years recorded in geologic strata, Holocene sea-level changes and coastal evolution in Japan, Diatoms as a tool for reconstructing sedimentary environments in coastal wetland; methodological aspects, Heterogeneous rupture in the great Cascadia earthquake of 1700 inferred from coastal subsidence estimates, History of earthquakes, tsunamis, and storm surges, Mid- to late-Holocene marine inundations inferred from coastal deposits facing the Nankai Trough in Nankoku, Kochi Prefecture, southern Japan, http://www.creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/, https://us.sagepub.com/en-us/nam/open-access-at-sage, Headquarters for Earthquake Research Promotion, 2001, Cabinet Office, Government of Japan, 2013, Kochi Prefecture Board of Education (1989), http://www.bousai.go.jp/jishin/nankai/taisaku_wg/pdf/20130528_honbun.pdf, http://www.jishin.go.jp/main/chousa/kaikou_pdf/nankai.pdf. This apparent frequency of tsunamis is quite low given the nine major earthquakes along the western Nankai Trough in the last 1300 years (Figure 2). Tosa Province (土佐国, Tosa no kuni) was an old province of Japan in the area of Kōchi Prefecture on the island of Shikoku. The tsunami struck from the Pacific coast of Kyushu, Miyazaki, led to the deaths of 57 on the island. At T1, Sand 2 consists of some planar sand beds between −0.11 and −0.07 m T.P. This study investigates the Holocene sedimentary history of a small coastal lowland in Nankoku, Kochi Prefecture, on the coast of southern Japan facing the Nankai Trough. BP.Depositional age of Sand 3 was constrained by four radiocarbon ages from T1 and T3 (Table 2). What we do. Some historical sources treat MINAMOTO no Kunimoto ( the governor of the Tosa Province) as the same person as MINAMOTO no Kunimoto ( Kunimoto NOSE ) mentioned above , but when we look at the names of the fathers and children of the two people and the historical periods they lived which are described in the " Azuma Kagami , " and a description in the " Sonpi Bunmyaku , " it becomes clear … Fossil diatoms were analyzed in 26 samples from the geoslice at T1. After the 17th century, tsunami waves and coseismic displacements were documented at several locations for each earthquake (the following records are summarized in Watanabe (1998)). Therefore, we referred the lower and the upper sand sheets as Sand 1a and 1b, respectively. Tsunami waves entrain terrestrial soil that dilutes the concentration of marine-brackish diatoms in tsunami deposits. Tosa was bordered by Iyo and Awa Provinces. (1990), Vos and De Wolf (1993), Witkowski et al. Cores at T5 and T6 are omitted from this figure because they did not contain any sand sheets. No need to register, buy now! The contact between Units 2 and 3, clearly seen in the seaward sites, is accompanied by sand sheets at all sites except T5 and T6, and by brownish gray silty clay at T2, T3, T7, and T8 (Figures 3c, 4, S1, S2, S3, S4, and S5). Although the estimated event ages in this study have intrinsic uncertainties of several to 10 centuries (Table 3), the evidence supports four marine inundation events during 5970–2440 cal. In particular, historical records document a 1300-year history of earthquakes in southwestern Japan (e.g. The first tsunami warning was announced 3 min after the earthquake, as is normal, but failed to estimate the actual tsunami height. We thank members of staff at Kochi Prefecture and Nankoku City offices for helping our drilling survey. It consists of fine to coarse sand including quartz and feldspar grains, and it contains abundant plant fragments (Figures 4, S1, S2, S3, S4, and S5). The tsunami associated with the 1361 Ko’an (Shohei) earthquake inundated an alluvial plain of the Monobe River (Figure 1c). Fourteen washover deposits were dated between 4800 and 1300 cal. The Japanese unit shiro is equivalent to 15.13 acres . This may be because development of beach ridges protected the site from tsunamis and storm surges. Our results demonstrate the need to reconsider the timing, recurrence intervals of the Nankai Trough earthquakes. Geological and geomorphological evidence along the Nankai-Suruga Trough has been studied in recent decades (e.g. About 20,000 people were killed and 60,000 houses collapsed, the Tosa area was affected by the tsunami. Although the sand sheets contained few marine-brackish diatoms, they were concentrated in the seaward part of the study site, suggesting that they were deposited by marine inundations. Tōkai, Tōnankai and Nankai earthquakes occurred at the same time with magnitude 8.4–8.6. Historical records of earthquakes in the Nankai-Suruga Trough begin with the 684 Hakuho earthquake (Figure 2).
