On September 27, there was an eruption at Mount Ontake, which straddles Nagano and Gifu prefectures. What state are Japan’s volcanoes in after the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011? How far has research and technology for predicting volcanic eruptions come?
The FPCJ has invited Dr. Toshitsugu Fujii, Director of Research Institute for Disaster Mitigation and Environmental Studies at the Crisis & Environment Management Policy Institute, to speak about volcanic activity in Japan and technology for predicting eruptions.
The briefing had a total of 23 participants, including 12 journalists from Brazil, China, Germany, Hong Kong, ROK, Switzerland and the US.
