Nansei-Toko Observatory for Earthquakes and Volcanoes (NOEV) was established in 1991 with a seismic network covering South Kyushu to investigate the volcanism especially related to regional and deep tectonic processes in a highly dipping subduction zone.
Seismic wave data from stations at Sakurajima and Kuchinoerabujima are telemetered by exclusive lines to NOEV. Some stations not telemetered are equipped with a long-term analogue recording system.
Geoelectric and geomagnetic data are also recorded digitally with a personal computer system at Sakurajima and Kagoshima City are repeatedly measured by an electro-optical distance-meter.
