Abstract

Orientation of seismometers at 12 observatories of the K-NET in western Kagoshima region (KGS001 ~ KGS012) was measured in this study. We found that stations KGS006 and KGS009 have rather large misorientation greater than 15°. We quickly check the effects of such instrument misorientation on waveform using the records of the 1997 northwestern Kagoshima earthquakes.
