Abstract of the 236th meeting of CCEP

  The 236th meeting of the Coordinating Committee for Earthquake Prediction (CCEP) was held at the Kanto Regional Survey Department of the GSI on August 29, 2022. And the meeting was onsite and online confference. Firstly, the nationwide monitoring data of the seismic activity and the crustal deformations were reported. Secondary, the CCEP members discussed the intensive discussion subject "Application of optical fiber sensing technology to seismology and geodesy" was explained. Finally, the purport of next intensive discussion subject "Long-term forecast of crustal earthquakes" was explained.
