Seismic study seeks to gather information useful for the prevention of future earthquakes.

With an investment of seven million dollars, the Institute of Geophysics of the UNAM, in conjunction with several Japanese institutions, is working on the assessment of the danger associated with great earthquakes and tsunamis in Guerrero´s seismic gap.

Researcher and project leader Víctor Manuel Cruz Atienza pointed out that slow-moving earthquakes have been found to have a periodicity of four years, and it is expected that by the end of 2018 or early 2019, information will be available to when the next event could occur.

The project consists of the installation of devices that measure from different perspectives the tectonic movement in the sea and the earth.

This task involves Japanese experts, who have already visited Zihuatanejo and have spoken to different local authorities to implement specific activities, including documented drills.

The project will use data from the earthquake-earth observation network to mitigate the risk associated with earthquakes and possible tsunamis, as both countries are in the world´s most active seismic regions.

70 percent of the cost of the project is being funded by Japanese institutions such as the universities of Tokyo, Kobe, Tohoku and Tokushima, as well as Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology.
