International Mount Erebus Eruption Mechanism Study

Project Description
1988-1989, the Antarctic summer season, New Zealand and carried out international joint observation that "the international volcanic eruption EREBASU Research Organization (IMEEMS: International Mount Erebus Eruption Mechanism Study)" to participate. IMEEMSの大きな目的はエレバス火山(77.5°S, 167°E, 3794m)の山体内での地震観測と, 山頂火口縁にTVカメラを設置して火口からの噴火を実時間でスコット基地に送り, モニターとビデオ記録することである。 The goal is a major volcanic IMEEMS EREBASU (77.5 ° S, 167 ° E, 3794m) mountain in the body of seismic stations and TV camera to the summit crater rim of the crater from the establishment of a real-time eruption sent to Scott Base, Monitor and record the video. これにより, 爆発の瞬間の時刻が決定でき, 同時に発生する地震と対応させることができる。 The decision time is the moment of the explosion, earthquakes occur simultaneously and can respond to it. 日本はこれまでどおり, スコット基地に設置してあるレコーダー類の保守, 点検, 記録の整理などを分担した。 Japan has so far as the Scott base on a recorder set up sort of maintenance, inspection, organize and share records. 1988年12月, エレバス火山の地震活動は前年同様に低かった。 December, 1988, EREBASU volcano's low earthquake activity is similar to the previous year. 噴火は12月後半の16日間にTVモニター上で35回記録された。 Erupted in late December for 16 days on the TV monitors recorded 35 times. エレバス山の火山活動は全体に前年と同じ程度であった。 Erebus volcano's activity is much the same as last year as a whole.

A program to continuously monitor the seismic activity of Mount Erebus (77.5°S, 167°E, 3794m) in Antarctica and to identify the mechanism of its eruption has been continued since January 1987 as an international cooperation between New Zealand and Japan, named IMEEMS (International Mount Erebus Eruption Mechanism Study). A TV camcra for monitoring explosions from the lava lake in the summit crater was installed at the crater rim of Mount Erebus. The video signals were transmitted to Scott Base of New Zealand by radio-telemetry and the exact time of eruptions was recorded using the same time code of the seismic network. A Japanese scientist participating in the IMEEMS visited Scott Base in December 1988 and conducted a series of observations of seismic and video recordings. The volcanic activities of Mount Erebus in December 1988 were nearly in the same situation for the last few seasons.
