  • Project Name : Unzen Scientific Drilling Project (USDP)
    Sponsor : MEXT, Japan.
    Co-sponsor(2003-2004) : International Continental Scientific Drilling Program.
    Cooperative Organizations : AIST, University of Tokyo, Kyushu University, Kyoto University, Hokkaido University, JAMSTEC, NIED, University of Alaska(USA), USGS(USA), GFZ(Germany), University of Bayreuth(Germany), etc.
    Outline of the project : This project is a comprehensive scientific research on Unzen Volcano with scientific drilling. The focus of scientific drilling is to clarify the regional crustal structure, magma evolution processes, the processes of conduit formation, magma degassing, and magma's interaction with groundwater.
