[SIT36-07] Integrated Frequency Comb Spectroscopy by ACROSS: Active Monitoring by Use of Elastic and Electromagnetic Waves
Now we claim that a new era has come to study the physics of the whole Earth's interiors by using an active method of physics instead of passive phenomenological approach. Pressure and temperature range of laboratory experiments on the materials has been extended to the bottom of the mantle, the first principle computation of physical properties has been realized, and numerical simulations of a variety of dynamic processes have come to be made, whereas the observation on the real nature has been made only passively so far without sufficient resolution and reliability yet.
We have apparently two major targets of the new observation technology:
(1) Active observation of the whole mantle, the inner core and also their boundary layers to provide much reliable data on the structure and their temporal variation with higher resolution to study the dynamics of the whole Earth. This target demands the installation of powerful transmitters distributed over the different continents, so that international corporation is demanded.
(2) Qualified system for monitoring the volcanic and earthquake fields can be now designed and proposed: implementation of denser array of both electromagnetic and elastic ACROSS of wider frequency range to acquire the detail physical states at the target sites. Special emphasis is placed on the physical studies of anisotropy and other structure-sensitive properties of the materials. The primary importance is to be placed on the study of the material physics through the qualified observations combined with laboratory experiments and material physics, which are essential for the background of future prediction research works on the disastrous events.
This presentation is an introduction to the forthcoming works directed to the "Integrated Frequency Comb Spectroscopy by ACROSS" for geophysical researches.
