This page aims at providing information of prognosis for landslide disasters due to baiu frontal precipitation.

Effective just for the Northern Kyushu & Chugoku district Japan & its surroundings (regional area scale). Not effective to individual landslide slopes!

In general, the meteorological condition as rainfall has only Km order resolution, whereas most landslides have usually some 100m scale.

Therefore, regional scale prognosis are just provided here.

 

1. How to predict with this Java applet

(1)Put the values below in the textboxes in the Java applet beneath:

1)850hpa altitude wind speed at Yonago, Japan; from other web pages (See below)

2) 850hpa altitude wind speed at Fukuoka, Japan

3)700hpa altitude wind speed at Yonago, Japan; from other web pages (See below)

4) 700hpa altitude wind speed at Fukuoka, Japan

5)850hpa altitude dew point depression at Yonago, Japan; T-Td from other web pages (See below)

6) 850hpa altitude dew point depression at Fukuoka, Japan; T-Td

7)700hpa altitude dew point depression at Yonago, Japan; T-Td from other web pages (See below)

8) 700hpa altitude dew point depression at Fukuoka, Japan; T-Td

9) Front and meso scale low pressure score FmLs ; with weather charts on webs.

Scores: * Front is just on the Northern Kyushu or Chugoku district and meso scale low pressure approaching to the region between Cheju Island Korea and Noto Peninsula Japan: FmLs = 0.9, ** Front is just on the Northern Kyushu or Chugoku district: FmLs = 0.5, ***No front is on the Northern Kyushu or Chugoku district: FmLs = 0.1

(2)Click the "PREDICT" button

 

2. The Result are displayed in the lower textbox in this Java applet.

* Predictions or prognosis are effective within one day duration.

** Caution!: This page shows a research prototype system.* Please, do not use it in real disastrous situation.

** Our laboratory and I are not responsible to your trial use of this Java applet especially in such situation.

* A browser with Java1.1 or later version is needed.




 


* The meteorological data needed here are able to gain from some web sites in the internet.For example, http://www.argos-net.co.jp/awc/fx_top.php
