Professors

Yoichi FUKUDA (Professor)

I am working in the field of physical geodesy, particular the spatial and temporal changes of the Earth's gravity field, including the studies of gravity anomalies, precise local geoid determination, satellite altimetry and marine geodesy. My present interest is to detect the gravity changes due to various phenomena occurring in the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, the cryosphere and the solid earth.

Shin'ichi MIYAZAKI (Associate Professor)

I've been researching crustal deformations due to earthquakes on verious time scales (from second to year) using GNSS(GPS) data (e.g., Miyazaki et al., GRL, 2004; Miyazaki et al., EPS, 2011). I'm applying data assimilation techniques to crustal deformation data, in order to obtain friction characteristics on earthquake faults. I'm also analyzing GPS data acquired at Yaeyama Islands (Okinawa Prefecture) to monitor slow slip events which occur below the islands every ~6 months.

Takahito KAZAMA (Assistant Professor)

We observe land gravity changes to monitor spatiotemporal mass variations associated with volcanism. For example, we detected the gravity change due to magma movement in the conduit of Asama Volcano using absolute gravimeters (Kazama et al., JGR, 2015).
We also model hydrological gravity changes associated with soil water infiltration and groundwater flow, in order to retrieve solid-earth gravity signals from hydrologically-disturbed gravity data (e.g., Kazama et al., EPS, 2012).
