The S wave velocity of bedrock is required to be more than 700 m/s. 2 shows the concept of the hypothetical free surface of the bedrock. 2 Literature Review, Tectonic, Geological, and Geophysical Surveys To model the seismic sources, past earthquakes, and active faults [faults active after the Pleistocene period of the late Quaternary (approximately 120,000– 130,000 years ago) and faults that may become active in the future] in the area surrounding the site must be investigated. A review of the existing literatures, including ancient documents and seismic observation records, investigations on tectonic geomorphology based on topographical and geological conditions, and geological and geophysical surveys, will be conducted.
