Collaborating with the researchers in Research Center for Prediction of Earthquakes and Volcanic Eruptions of Graduate School of Science, we are making the following studies for clarifying the fundamental processes of volcanism and for forecasting volcanic hazards.

  1. Deep structure and origin of active volcanoes on the Japan Islands and the whole Earth;
  2. Relationship between volcanism and dynamics of the Earth's interior;
  3. Earthquake and volcano interactions and short-term and long-term predictions of volcanic hazards.
