[STT52-06] Repeated aeromagnetic surveys at Kuchi-erabu-jima volcano by using unmanned helicopter
Keywords:aeromagnetic survey, unmanned helicopter, volcano
We conducted repeated aeromagnetic surveys in April and September 2015 by using unmanned helicopter. The altitude of the flight was kept to about 100 m above the ground and geomagnetic total intensity data at an almost whole area above the volcanoes were obtained. A total measurement length of flight was about 60 km.
The first survey in April 2015 revealed that the average magnetization is so small as about 1.8 A/m, which is typical value for andesite. Also the crater areas show very low magnetization, while surrounding areas of the crater have relatively strong magnetization as much as 3 A/m. The second survey in September detected small changes of the geomagnetic field. It reveals that the demagnetization in the crater and the magnetization around the crater. It may indicate that the magmatic products erupted out of the crater and showed the demagnetized features, while some ashes and pyroclastic flow remain at the volcanic surface around the crater and got some magnetization.
