Meteorological agency to implement terrestrial magnetism observation for underground temperature of Mt. Hakone

On 5/26/2015, Meteorological Research Institute announced they are going to observe the underground temperature of Mt. Hakone.

From 5/27/2015, they are going to implement terrestrial magnetism observation at 3 points around the north of the crater. The observation will be repeated every 2 weeks.


The research institute states the stones and rocks lose magnetism when the temperature goes over 300 〜 400℃ so they may be able to know the temperature increase by observing terrestrial magnetism.

Hot Springs Research Institute of Kanagawa Prefecture is going to collaborate with the research institute.

Yamasato, the manager of volcanic research department commented the diastrophism is assumed to be occurring in the shallow area. It is needed to observe the change in temperature.

Le 26 mai 2015, Le Meteorological Research Institute déclare qu’ils vont observer la température souterraine du Mt. Hakone.

A partir du 27 mai 2015, ils vont procéder à des observations du magnétisme terrestre en 3 points autour du nord du cratère. Ces observations seront répétées toutes les 2 semaines.

Cet institut de recherche affirment que les pierres et les rochers perdent de leur magnétisme lorsque leur température dépasse les 300 à 400 °C donc ils pourraient être en mesure de connaître les augmentations de température en observant le magnétisme terrestre.
Le Hot Springs Research Institute de la Préfecture de Kanagawa va collaborer avec cet institut de recherche.
M. Yamasato, en charge du département de recherches volcaniques a déclaré que le diastrophisme est supposé se produire superficiellement. Il est nécessaire d’observer les changements de température.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
