Good Morning from atop Mt. Fuji

Mr. Hiroshi Iwazaki, the chief of mountain crews of NPO Mount Fuji Research Station has sent us the beautiful morning views of today (July 6, 2017 6:00am). The temperature was -0.2 degree Centigrade.

At 9:30 AM of July 1, the power supply was safely connected for the Summer Campaign 2017, the Tenth Anniversary, has started. About 500 researchers/(one summer) are now on their way to begin the research during 62 days (From July 1 to Aug. 31) atop Mount Fuji with 29 projects.

NIES opened CO2 data at Mt. Fuji

We are happy to receive a mail from Dr. Shohei Nomura informing that the 'Daily Observational Data of Atmospheric CO2 Mixing Ratios at the Summit of Mt. Fuji’ is now open in the following URL


Do you know ACPM2017 ?

The third international symposium on Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics at Mountain Sites (ACPM2017) will be held by us, NPO Mount Fuji Research Station, in the following schedule. World researchers of various fields of atmospheric chemistry and physics who utilize mountain sites will get together at Gotemba, Japan where we can look at magnificent Mount Fuji close.

Presentation and discussion will be had on the 10 sessions to investigate the solution to the global and/or local environmental problems.

Session 1: Effects of the planetary boundary layer on measurements at mountain sites and transport modeling
Session 2: Background baseline observations at mountain sites
Session 3: Carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide
Session 4: NMHC, PAN and ammonia
Session 5: Long-term changes of ozone and its precursors
Session 6: Aerosol optical depth and aerosol optical properties
Session 7: Aerosols nucleation
Session 8: Aerosol chemical composition
Session 9: Cloud Microphysics
Session10: Chemistry of fog/cloud, rain and dew at mountain Sites

Conference Date: November 7(Tue.)-10(Fri.) ,2017
Venue: Gotemba Kogen Resort “Toki-No-Sumika”
