[ACG23-04] Location estimation of submarine groundwater discharge from Mt. Fuji in Suruga Bay (III)
Keywords:submarine groundwater discharge (SGD), Mt. Fuji, remotely operated vehicle (ROV), water quality analyses
For the purpose of contribution to make sense of the rich coastal ecosystem in Suruga Bay, we conducted a survey for submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) in Oku-Suruga Bay: from the mouth of the Fuji River, at which the fault is found, to Tagonoura, where the lavas of the Younger Fuji volcano are distributed from 100 to 200 m below sea level. We tried to estimate some locations of SGD from bottom topography, condition of seabed and geological structure by using multibeam sonar, side scan sonar and sub-bottom profiler, respectively. We also used a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for photographing for the image of the extrapolated spring points, sampled seawater containing sea bottom spring water and conducted water quality analyses. In this presentation, we introduce our works noted above.
