This paper is expanded from a mimeographed memorandum circulated, and presented for discussion, at the spring meeting of the Seismological Society of Japan, at Tokyo, May 12, 1960. The intention is not to offer any new material, but to bring together more or less well known results in a form suitable for critical comment.

Additional Information:© 1960 Seismological Society of Japan. It would be difficult, however pleasant, to acknowledge all my obligations in preparing this note. I am indebted to publications by many authors, and to personal discussions in Tokyo and elsewhere. Before coming to Japan I found much information and many useful suggestions in publications by Professor KOBAYASHI; since my arrival in Tokyo he has kindly made his publications available for further study, and has been very helpful personally. I have made almost incessant use of "Geology and Mineral Resources of Japan," with accompanying map, published by the Geological Survey in 1956. For discussion of the preliminary draft of this paper, and the correction of various errors, I am particularly indebted to Professor H. KUNO and Professor T. SAKAMOTO. Professor EHARA'S valuable series of paper on the geotectonics of the Pacific have been extremely useful in the revision. Caltech Division of the Geological Sciences, contribution No. 994.
