Abstract: The present location of the tectonic boundary and the convergence rate between the Amur and Okhotsk plates in northern Hokkaido, Japan, were herein estimated from the velocity field using data from a continuous GNSS network. The observed velocity profiles are in agreement with the theoretical ones calculated from a tectonic block collision model. The estimated kinematic boundary agrees with both geological and seismic boundaries. Overall, this indicates that the geological boundary acts like a mechanical one. The calculated convergence velocity of 14.0-16.5 mm/year is consistent with predictions from regional plate motion models and suggests that a considerable amount of interplate convergence is in progress along this boundary. Deep crustal seismicity is also in agreement with the estimated elastic thickness of 20.5-25.5 km. The non-occurrence of large earthquakes during the past several centuries, and the estimated convergence velocity suggest that there is a high potential for a large event in the near future.
