Reference Docs. WNA reactor database. org. 2 The nature of tectonic hazards M. Cloos The tectonic forces at work deep within Earth are enormous and outside the control of humans. The power of large earthquakes to devastate cities is evident from the 1906 San Francisco and 1923 Tokyo events. The 2004 mega-disaster arising from the earthquake offshore Sumatra generated tsunamis that caused destruction in areas far from where any shaking was felt.

The Hawaiian hot spot is the type example and the HawaiianEmperor seamount chain records the movement of the Pacific plate. This 5500 km-long volcanic chain formed over the past 80 Ma and directly records horizontal plate movements at speeds of ∼ 7 cm a−1 . 3 Rates of plate movement When one speaks of tectonic movements at plate boundaries, one is usually referring to relative movements occurring at speeds of ∼ 1−10 cm a−1 . 6). Relative movements everywhere else are occurring at speeds 10 cm a−1 .

Critically, the new approach in Japan requires reevaluation of existing NPPs, with possible seismic back-fitting being required. This reevaluation is already demanding additional, more detailed site characterization work, especially within a 5 km radius of the NPPs, aimed at identifying what may previously have been undetected potential earthquake sources (“hidden” active faults). Tectonic events and nuclear facilities 17 Japan has used its experience with NPP seismic hazard evaluation to develop equivalent approaches for other nuclear facilities potentially at risk from earthquake impacts.
