"The fact that within six months we have understood this much - that is really quite impressive," said Hiroo Kanamori, a professor emeritus at Caltech, and a revered figure among geophysicists. He was not involved in the research.
Kanamori, who has studied large earthquakes for decades, said that vast improvements in both the quality and quantity of instruments, and of methodology, has allowed the science to make unprecedented strides forward.
"If this had happened 40 years ago, it would have taken a few years to even understand what it was," he told OurAmazingPlanet.
And although he said the event certainly was surprising, he noted that it's only surprising from the perspective of a human lifetime - "not on the geological time scale," he said.

Dr. Hiroo Kanamori (Japan, October 17, 1936)
Professor Emeritus, California Institute of Technology
Dr. Hiroo Kanamori has made an epoch-making progress on the study of great earthquakes through the establishment of analytical method to understand quantitatively all over the rupture process of a great earthquake making full use of seismogram. This study has ushered in a new era in seismology and had a significant impact on the development of geophysics. He has made practical proposals on how to mitigate earthquake hazards based on the knowledge gained through basic studies and contributed to building up and conducting earthquake hazard mitigation systems.
