New mountain climbing route for Aso Nakadake [Kumamoto]

If you write the contents roughly
This mountain climbing route has been developed by the Ministry of the Environment so that even if the eruption alert level is raised and access within 1 km from the crater is restricted, it is possible to bypass this area and climb Aso Nakadake and Takaoka.

A new mountain climbing route to Aso Nakadake was developed, and the opening ceremony was held on the XNUMXth. Aso Yamagami Visitor Center on the XNUMXth ... → Continue reading

Eruption alert level

Eruption alert level(Funking level,English: Volcanic Alert Levels[1]) IsJapanIn eachVolcanoAs an indication of the necessary disaster prevention measures and warning range according to the activity status ofJapanese Meteorological AgencyTo announceindexAnd 1 (active volcanoThere are 5 stages from) to 5 (evacuation).[2].

It is always announced for each volcano, and the level change isEruption alarmOrforecastMade by the announcement of[2].2007(Heisei19) Started in December[3]Currently (as of September 2019) 9 volcanoes are targeted[2].

Eruption alert level classification

1 levels from 5 to 5[2].Eruption alarm・ It is always announced together with the forecast.Notify changes in the text of the eruption forecast for level 1 and the eruption warning for levels 2 to 5[2].

The name of Level 1 at the time of introduction was "normal".Eruption of Mt. Ontake on September 2014, 9After that, there was a voice saying that it would lead to the misunderstanding that it was safe.2015May 5From 14:XNUMX "Note that it is an active volcanoWas changed to.At the same time, if there is a change in volcanic activity that does not lead to an increase in level,Commentary on the state of the volcanoToExtraordinaryWill be announced clearly[4][5].

Typelevel[6]DesignationCorresponding alarm, etc.Degree of volcanic activityEvacuation behavior, etc.
Special alarm
EvacuationEruption alarm
(Residential areas)
Volcanic activity (eruption) that causes serious damage to the residential area has occurred, or there is a high risk of it and it is in an imminent state.All residents are evacuated in dangerous areas.
Evacuation preparationVolcanic activity (eruption) that causes serious damage to residential areas is expected to occur, and the fear is increasing.Disaster Relief RequiredEvacuate.Other residents also prepare for evacuation in dangerous areas.
Mountain entry restrictionsEruption alarm
Life-threatening volcanic activity (eruption) has occurred near or is likely to reach the residential area.Depending on the situation, mountain climbing prohibitions and mountain climbing restrictions are enforced.In some cases, evacuation preparations are made for people requiring assistance during a disaster.
Regulations around the craterLife-threatening volcanic activity (eruption) has occurred or is likely to occur in or around the crater.Access is restricted around the crater.

To be an active volcano Pay attention

Eruption forecastVolcanic activity is almost calm,Volcanic ashThere is a change in the activity state such as spouting, which may be life-threatening in the crater.Access may be restricted inside the crater.

Presentation criteria

The standards are set based on the assumption of volcanic activity at each volcano.The criteria are not immutable and will be reviewed when the situation of volcanic activity changes or new findings are obtained from research.In addition, based on the recommendations of the Volcanic Eruption Prediction Liaison Committee in March 2015, from March 3, the criteria for determining the eruption alert level from the ready volcanoes have been announced sequentially (as of September 2016, 3). Volcano)[7][8].

The specific criteria for raising or lowering the level vary from volcano to volcano.To give an exampleVolcanic tremorAmplitude increase and continuation for a certain period of time,Volcanic earthquake, Red heat phenomenon at the bottom of the crater, activation of sediment eruption,Volcanic gasIncreased release, decreased amount of hot water,GNSSCrustal movements that indicate mountain expansion due to eruption, rapid crustal movements that indicate pressure increase just below the crater by an inclinometer, etc. Phenomena and eruptive activities such as distant scattering of volcanic stones and large air vibrations can be mentioned.[9][10].

These standard settings are based on eruption scenarios based on past eruptive activity literature, observation records since modern times, and scientific knowledge at that time.Therefore, there is a possibility that an eruption will occur without observing anomalies, or that the eruption will continue in an atypical or unexperienced scenario.In addition, access restrictions and evacuation plans according to the alert levelZoningIs just an eruption scenario of the assumed crater, and some craters are not targeted for zoning because they have not been active recently.As an example, Mt. Aso is zoning assuming an eruption from the Nakadake crater, and zoning centered on Mt. Kishima, Mt. Ojo, and Mt.[9][10].


Background of enactment

Prior to the introduction of the Volcanic Alert Level, the Japan Meteorological Agency aimed to easily understand the status of volcanic activity.2003(15)May 11Announced "Volcanic Activity Level" for some volcanoes[11]..This represented the activity of the volcano in 0 steps from 5 to 6,Cabinet OfficeAt the Volcanic Disaster Prevention Measures Study Group, which was established in 2006 by the government, the level is centered on volcanic phenomena, and it is difficult for the residents of the recipient to imagine the degree of urgency and utilize it for appropriate disaster prevention actions. Was pointed out[12].

After subsequent discussions, on March 2007, 3, the "Summary of Volcanic Disaster Prevention Measures for Evacuation Systems in the Event of an Eruption (tentative name)" was announced, and the volcano information released by the Japan Meteorological Agency was made more suitable for disaster prevention activities. It was indicated that it is necessary to change and promote the formulation of evacuation plans for temporary residents such as residents and tourists around the volcano and to link them closely.It is recommended that the volcanic activity level be changed to a new level that is classified based on evacuation behavior such as during an eruption regarding the volcanic activity status.[13].

On June 2007, 6, it was announced that the name of the new level was proposed as "Volcanic Alert Level" at the study group.[14], The outline was announced by the Japan Meteorological Agency[15].

Preparation for the start of the announcement and addition of target volcanoes

Japan Meteorological AgencyEruption forecast111 active volcanoes announcing (eruption warning)2017As of June) Yes[16]..Of these, 50 volcanoes with high disaster prevention needsVolcanic eruption prediction liaison meetingBut"Volcanoes need to be fully equipped with monitoring and observation systems for volcanic disaster preventionThe Japan Meteorological Agency and universities monitor activities 24 hours a day (constant observation volcano).[17].

In the local area of ​​50 volcanoes, it was installed sequentially市町村-Prefectures,Weather station, Volcano expert,Policemen,FireEtc. hold discussionsRegional disaster prevention planInclude the evacuation start time and range according to the level of volcanic activity.From this ready volcano, we are starting to announce the eruption alert level in sequence.[2].

2007(Heisei19 years)May 12Initially started in 16 volcanoes[3], Will be added sequentially to the present.

Act on Special Measures against Active VolcanoesUntil the 2015 amendment, the establishment of a volcanic disaster prevention council was voluntary.Therefore, there were areas such as Mt. Taisetsuzan, Mt. Zao, Mt. Chokai, and Mt. Norikura where the council was not established until 2015. Did not).Due to the amendment of the law, installation is required at 50 constantly observed volcanoes, and it was later added to the subject of announcement[18][19][2].

50 constantly observed volcanoes[17]Out ofTowada,Iwo JimaTwo have not yet been announced at Volcanic Alert Level[2].. (Eruption warnings and forecasts are covered.)

Current target volcano

As of September 2019, the target is as follows48 volcanoesIs. Some volcanoes are divided into multiple zones and separate alert levels are set.Mt. KirishimaIs in the three areas of "Ebino Plateau (Mt. Io)", "Shinmoedake", and "Mihachi".Kusatsu Shirane MountainIs divided into two categories, "Mt. Shirane (near Yugama)" and "Mt. Motoshirane".AlsoEastern Izu Volcano Group,Mt. Tsurumidake / GarandakeIn the active volcano group of, a group of volcanoes containing multiple volcanoes is counted as one volcano.The latest eruption alert level introduced volcano2019May 7Hakkoda Mountains, Niijima, and Kozushima added to.
