[G03-13] Analog experiments of various phenomena around volcanoes: flank instability, crustal deformation, fault, tsunami, etc.

*Akira Takada1 (1.National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology Geological Survey of Japan)

Keywords:Analog experiments, caldera collapse, flank instability, crustal deformation, fault, tsunami

Analog experiments are useful for outreach program. We cannot see the inside of a volcano directly, though various phenomena are caused by underground events. Various phenomena on volcanic process are generally dangerous. Analog experiments are useful to understand various volcanic processes safety, unlike real phenomena. We can also learn the basic mechanism. I will present various analog experiments on caldera collapse, flank instability of a volcano, topographic effects on tsunami, various faults, etc. These experiments were carried out at elementary or junior high schools, science museums, the open house in AIST, and lectures of university.
