|Title:||Japanese seismicity and the limits of prediction||Authors:||Clancey, G.||Issue Date:||May-2012||Citation:||Clancey, G. (2012-05). Japanese seismicity and the limits of prediction. Journal of Asian Studies 71 (2) : 333-344.

Seismicity is a geographically selective concern, but because radiation is involved in the present instance, the stake-holders in debates surrounding the earthquake are much more numerous and spread over a far wider map. In fact seismicity, as opposed to radiation, has receded in most contemporary discussions of the earthquake's aftermath, just as Sanriku, the area most damaged by the tsunami, has been displaced by Fukushima as shorthand for the event as a whole. © 2012 The Association for Asian Studies, Inc.||Source Title:||Journal of Asian Studies||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/52197||ISSN:||00219118||DOI:||10.1017/S0021911812000058|
