As of this week, we have a sister station in Tohoku Japan: THJP. The first images coming out of this station show how seismically active that region is. Of course everyone remembers the Big Tohoku Earthquake. Our colleagues at Tohoku University have been playing an important role in understanding the underground structure, and tectonic processes that shape — and shake — Japan.
