Organization Abstract
DCRC(Disaster Control Research Center, School of Engineering , Tohoku University, Earthquake division) The Disaster Control Research Center of Tohoku University composed of two laboratoroes, earthquake and tsunami engineerings, was established in June, 1990 and restarted in April, 2000. The tsunami engineering lab. Is studying tsunamis from the engineering point of view.
NIED (National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention) The National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention (NIED) is contributing to the creation of a safe living environment through the development of efficient and dependable technology. This site includes links to its divisions, related institutes etc.
MRI (Meteorological Research Institute,Japan) The Meteorological Research Institute (MRI), as an associate institute of the Japan Meteorological Agency, is engaged in analysing and predicting meteorological, geophysical, hydrological and oceanographic phenomena, as well as developing extensive related technology. We can know its research activity in this homepage.
ERI (Earthquake Research Institute, The University of Tokyo) The foundation of the Earthquake Research Institute, The University of Tokyo is November 13, in Taisho 14. It has realized basic research of seismology and it is authority of earthquake prediction, of a volcanic eruption plan promotion in Japan. The latest topics regarding the research contents and disaster are introduced. The link collection is improving.
DPRI (Disaster Prevention Research Institute, Kyoto University) The Disaster Prevention Research Institute carries out research on a variety of problems related to the prevention or reduction of natural disasters. The activity, research contents, research organization etc. are introduced in the homepage.
PHIVOLCS(Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology) The principal goal of PHIVOLCS is to formulate up-to-date and comprehensive disaster preparedness and loss reduction actions plans for volcanic eruption, earthquake occurrences and related geotectonic processes/phenomena (e.g. faulting, landslides and tsunami) which imprint significant impacts on man and his environment. In the site we can see information about earthquake, its projects, publications etc.
AIST Geological Survey of Japan They are disclosing the research/information offer regarding the research, earth science of geology. The information and notice board, relation link of a/the volcano are improving very much.
Nordisk Vulkanologisk Institut This site provides information about ongoing subglacial eruption in Vatnajokull, Iceland which started on September 29, 1996. We can see many images of this phenomena in chronological order.
Shizuoka Prefectural Earthquake Preparedness Education Center The Center was established on the purpose to, heighten people's awareness, advance on disaster countermeasures, striving for an interchange of extensive information and better communications between people on preparation against earthquake.
ASSOCIATION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF EARTHQUAKE PREDICTION, Japan ASSOCIATION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF EARTHQUAKE PREDICTION has taken charge of the subjects of many surveys extending from country, local authorities or private enterprise etc. to, earthquake tectonics, earthquake occurrence prediction, ground shock prediction, assessments of earthquake damage, disaster prevention research etc., physical science/engineering both sides, after establishment, as the public-service corporation in January in 1981. The earthquake survey research promotion headquarters are entrusting the business that is established and support the same promotion headquarters regarding the analysis evaluation of the observation data by earthquake survey research, to the Prime Minister's Office on the basis of the earthquake disaster prevention measure special measure law of implementation on July 18 in 1995. It is able to search it from the name and occurrence area etc. about a main earthquake on HP.
International Sabo Network The International Sabo Network provides the system for officials and engineers of all nationalities, who engage in preventing sediment-related disasters, to share the information about sediment-related disasters and measures.
The Network of Asian River Basin Organizations (NARBO) NARBO was officially established in February 2004 to promote integrated water resources management (IWRM) in monsoon areas of Asia.
