Prof. Katsumi Asano
Chair of NPO “Valid Utilization of Mt. Fuji Weather Station”
I wish you all a Happy New Year for 2008 !
On July 21, 2007, we, the NPO members were able to contract with Japan Meteorological Agency to utilize a part of Mt. Fuji Weather Station, as the first unique case in Japan． According to the contract，we could officially maintain the facility for 2 months from 2007 to 2009. Thus, from July 10 to Sept. 5, 2007, we could safely maintain the station and support 9 research projects (4 projects in high altitude medical science, 2 in atmospheric chemistry, one in cosmic ray research, one in ecology and one in safety system research), having 3 staff at the station..
On Nov. 21, we had a press conference at the Tokyo Press Center, the content of which appeared in the TV news of the day and in the news papers of the next day.
This year is the year of the Hokkaido Toyako Summit which will be focused on the global environmental problems such as global warming and trans-boundary air pollution. We would like to take this chance to show our activities in monitoring at the Mt. Fuji weather station, continuing the research in the summer to serve the national health problems.
We sincerely ask for your warm understanding and cooperation to our activities.
