[SCG62-P01] Relation between Earthquakes and Volcanic Eruptions – Messages from the Natural History –

*Osamu Oshima1 (1.none)

Keywords:earthquake, volcanic eruption, natural history, geology

Relation between earthquakes and volcanic eruptions is a big and important problem since a proposal by Nakamura(1971) following Plate Tectonics. After the big earthquake and tsunami event in NE Japan on March 11, 2011, a large volcanic eruption has been expected by many scientists, though enlargement of magma chamber(s) for future formation of caldera(s) has also been anticipated by a small number of (?) volcanologists including by the present author. In order to make more clear relation between earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, historical data have been clarified in this poster. New targets of study will be pointed out.
