Coordinating Committee for Earthquake Prediction

The Coordinating Committee for Earthquake Prediction (CCEP) in Japan was founded in April 1969,[1] as part of the [3] It has a secretariat within the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.[4]

History

The first moves towards the Committee were taken after earthquake researchers published Earthquake Prediction - Current Status and Action Plan in 1962. This was adopted by the General Assembly of Geodesy Council with the launch of their first prediction plan in 1964. Following earthquakes in 1964, 1695 and 1968 the EEPC was founded to coordinate future prediction activities.[5][6]

Geographical Areas of Observation

In order to focus future work, and based on the geological evidence, in 1970 the CCEP designated certain areas of Japan as Areas of Specified Observation or Areas of Intensified Observation.[2][7] The Tōkai region was upgraded to an Area of Intensified Observation in 1974.[7]

By 1978, when some of the boundaries were also changed, eight Areas of Specified Observation and two Areas of Intensified Observation had been designated.[7][8]
