Data Assimilation and Understanding
Microscopic Simulation and Scaling Physics
Instruction for Presentation
As a post workshop project, a special issue is being arranged in PAGEOPH.
The details are as follows.
"Earthquake and Tsunami Science: Towards Disaster Prevention"
Eiichi Fukuyama with 2-3 co-editors (not assigned yet)
Simulations of earthquake and tsunamis are conducted for the mitigation of natural disasters cooperating with field observations. In this special issue, the topics related to earthquake generation and cycles, earthquake source dynamics, earthquake scaling physics, seismic wave propagation, data assimilations, and computational environment and algorithms are welcome.
Deadline for Submission:
January 31, 2011
Submission should be made online at http://pageoph.edmgr.com/
At the first page of the web, you have to choose the article type as
"Report - Top. Vol.: Disaster Prevention".
Please note that in this special volume we do not limit to the papers that presented in the ACES workshop. If you have a topic related to the scope of this special issue, we welcome your submission.

Oct. 8, 2010 (Fri) 8:30-19:00 Field Trip (optional)
Field Trip is planned to visit geophysically interesting places near Otaru.
- Usu volcano (visit craters created during the 2000 eruption)
- Lake Toya (Toya caldera, Usu volcano is located on its southern rim, stop for lunch)
- Showa-shinzan volcano (quite young volcano, also visit Mimatsu museum)
- Lake Shikotsu (Shikotsu caldera, Tarumae volcano is located on its southern rim)
Registration for the filed trip is already closed.
Field Trip is free of charge including lunch and insurance.
Tentative schedule for the field trip is as follows. Please keep in mind that the arrival of the New-Chitose airport may delay due to unexpected reasons.
8:30 Depart Grand Park Hotel Otaru
10:30-12:30 Visit Usu volcano, Nishiyama craters (created during the 2000 eruption)
12:30 Lunch at a restaurant near Toya Lake
13:30-14:30 Visit Showa-Shinzan volcano and Mimatsu museum
15:30-16:00 Visit Koke-no-domon, a moss covered cavern
16:30 Visit Lake Shikotsu
~17:30 Arrive at New Chitose (Sapporo) airport
~19:00 Arrive at Grand Park Hotel Otaru
The nearest airport for Otaru is the New Chitose airport. There are many domestic flights from all over Japan including Narita, Chubu and Kansai. There are some international flights from Taipei and Seoul.
JR train called "Rapid Airport Express" runs every 30 minutes for Otaru. The station is located at the underground level of the airport. Take the train until the Otaru-Chikko station (two station before the Otaru station). It takes about 1 hour.
IMPORTANT: Please take the train for "OTARU". Rapid Airport Express has several destinations.
IMPORTANT: Please purchase your ticket (\1550) from an automated ticket vendor before passing the automatic ticket gate.
From the Otaru-Chikko station, the Otaru Grand Park Hotel is in a walking distance (~ 5 min.). In the daytime (10AM-9PM) you can walk through a shopping mall to the hotel. In other time, go down to the ground level and walk along the southern side of the shopping mall.
