[S-SS29] Real-time monitoring, analysis, prediction of seismic ground motion, crustal movement and volcanic activity

Sun. May 22, 2016 5:15 PM - 6:30 PM Poster Hall (International Exhibition Hall HALL6)

Convener:*Mitsuyuki Hoshiba(Meteorological Research Institute), Takao Kagawa(Tottori University Graduate School of Engineering), Satoshi Kawamoto(Geospatial Information Authority of Japan), Hiromitsu Nakamura(National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention), Takeshi Koizumi(Japan Meteorological Agency), Naoki Hayashimoto(Seismology and Tsunami Research Department, Meteorological Research Institute)

Real-time monitoring, analysis, and prediction of seismic ground motion and crustal movement are expected to be powerful tools for earthquake, tsunami and volcano disaster preparedness/mitigation. They have been applied to Tsunami and Earthquake Early Warnings. In the field of volcano, JMA has recently started to provide Eruption Notice to inform people of volcanic eruptions promptly. After the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake (Mw9.0) and other events, however, some weak points were revealed in the techniques. In this session, we will discuss new ideas, methods and applications of the (near) real-time data analysis of seismic, geodetic and volcanic data, as well as real-time prediction aiming at disaster preparedness/mitigation in the field of earthquake, tsunami and volcanoes.
