[SVC49-03] Detecting interior structure in Iwate volcano using muon radiography.
Keywords:muon, spring water, chemical analysis
The present data taking is stabilized and simple two dimensional image can be obtained.
However, the density length of volcano body obtained from the measurements shows a value considerably different from the actual thickness of the mountain and it is influenced much by the muons coming in from electromagnetic shower or scattering from the surroundings. On the other hand, a comparison of the actually measured density length and distance from the topographic data used a 10m mesh DEM of volcano altitude and from the density distribution, difference of density distribution appeared from the younger volcano body between the elder.
From the chemical composition of the spring water can be divided to two groups as Ca(HCO3)2 type and the SO42- in addition to Ca(HCO3)2. When tritium dating shows values of 13.9-23.5 years were obtained. Particularly for the Oide and Kanazawa springs, the values were respectively 19.4 years and 23.5 years and this indicates the possibility of the groundwater recharged during 1998-2003 eruption crisis to gush out now onwards.
