Title of project:
Study on long-term CO2 observation at summit of Mt. Fuji
Project leader and team:
Long term atmospheric CO2 concentration measurement on the top of Mt. Fuji (3776m) has been operated by an automatic CO2 measurement system developed by NIES (National Institute for Environmental
Studies) since August 2009. The system is designed for remote areas where the environmental condition is harsh from the observational point of view. Now because we concluded that the measurement
system became stable and reliable enough, we shifted into a regular operation in summer, 2012.
During summer, we operate maintenance including charging the 100 Pb batteries to have the system prepared for winter season when the ordinal electricity is not used.
