[MIS27-P04] Construction of multi-parameter EM stations in Kochi under the national program and its scientific background
Keywords:Electromagnetics, Kochi, Kuroshio town, Earthquake prediction
We installed electromagnetic observation devices in ULF and VHF bands in February 2015 in Kuroshio town, western part of Kochi Prefecture under the, what we call, national earthquake prediction research project. We will install VLF device in the future.
The reason why we select Kuroshio town is as follows:
1)According to the official statement of Cabinet Office, the highest tsunami height is reported (the worsted case; 34m) impending mega-quake along the Nankai trough.
2)Last Nankai Earthquake in 1946, clear macroscopic anomalies such as underground water changes, crustal deformations were reported.
In the presentation, we would like to present the latest data and future plan for the tactics of the short-term earthquake prediction research.
