Abstract The 2016 Kumamoto earthquake sequence occurred on April 14 (MJMA 6.5) and April 16 (MJMA 7.3). Seismic intensity of 7 on the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) scale was observed in Mashiki Town, Kumamoto Prefecture for the both events and in Nishihara Village, Kumamoto Prefecture for the April-16 event. We estimate the displacement waveforms from these acceleration records. Since the acceleration seismograms include the long-period noise due to tilting of the ground and instrumental effects, the baseline corrections are required to derive the accurate velocity and displacement waveforms. We apply a median filter to the velocity waveforms to identify the linear trends on them due to the steplike noise on the acceleration records, and determine the time at which baseline shifts take place and the step value of each shift for the baseline correction through trial and error. Our baseline correction can successfully reconstruct the velocity and displacement waveforms from the acceleration records. The displacement waveforms show the static components consistent with the geodetic data.

Author Kato, Yuji| Kato, Kuranoshin|
Abstract Since the recent climate change is an important topic in the context of SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and ESD (Education for Sustainable Development), teacher training course should produce educators with sufficient geo-literacy. In order to meet this requirement, the authors have designed a study plan that facilitates students’ better understanding of current climate change issues, which will be offered in a lecture at university by two speakers who have different specialties, paleoenvironmental science and meteorology. Summary of the lecture is as follows. At first, from the branch of paleoenvironmental science, a major cooling event at the Eocene/Oligocene boundary and the glacial-interglacial cycles in the Quaternary will be explained. We will then instruct the participants to compare these climatic events with recent global warming, in order to remind them of the extraordinary higher speed of the recent climate change than climatic events in the geological past. Followed by these global topics, climatological features in East Asia including Japan (e.g. regional/seasonal difference in climate and year-to-year variations) will be demonstrated in order to relate local issues to global ones. By these efforts, the lecture aims to cultivate students’ ability to grasp geophenomena from various aspects and understand the true nature of problems, which may contribute producing educators who can execute ESD programs.

Title Alternative Information and communication technology equipment and services for remote monitoring and health management: Survey of services and their classification for use in home care nursing
FullText URL interdisciplinary_1_47_63.pdf
Author Sakamoto, Toshio| Hirata, Akina| Morita, Mizuki|
Abstract This study aims to improve the quality of home nursing care for the elderly. The report presents web-based information about devices and services for remote monitoring and health management using information and communication technology and about how they can improve home care nursing station efficiency in Japan. The search terms "elderly people," "watch over," and "service," plus "sensor" were used to narrow the search. After repeating the search using a chained search for materials and links extracted from those search results, services for home care stations particularly addressing the remote monitoring of elderly people were selected and extracted. Early detection of abnormalities for support by home health nurse responsibilities for observing the general condition of the patient was chosen as the main evaluation index of usefulness. The contractor and service cost were secondary evaluation axes. Results show 9 information communication devices and services for real-time monitoring of the elderly persons’ vital signs in real time for 24 hr, 2 of which are highly useful for early detection of abnormalities and subsequent response. Results suggest that other services might be more useful, depending on how they are used, and that general-purpose services with minimum functions and low cost of introduction and maintenance can provide more opportunities for utilization. Providing these services on a BtoBtoC model and responding to patients’ medical needs can supplement home care nursing station work, increase human resource and time efficiencies, and give patients "the feeling that a nurse is always at their bedside,” even when far away.

Title Alternative Consideration about recognition of factors causing lack of confirmation in the nursing scene
FullText URL interdisciplinary_1_29_45.pdf
Author Zuo, Wanxin| Hyodo, Yoshimi| Tanaka, Tomoko| Gofuku, Akio|
Abstract In the work process of nurses with high risk, it is very urgent to take countermeasures against the “lack of confirmation” of the main factors. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to clarify the details of the factors leading to the lack of confirmation, grasp the number of near misses, and to explore what kind of factors the individual characteristics of the nurse who acts as a stopper. We recruited 500 nurses on the Web and asked about the frequency of near misses due to lack of confirmation, the awareness of the causes of lack of confirmation, self-evaluation of stoppers, and the reasons why near misses did not lead to accidents. As a result, three factors were extracted regarding the recognition of the factors of lack of confirmation: "lack of consciousness", "inability to concentrate", and "lack of knowledge / experience". Three factors were extracted for self-evaluation of stopper characteristics: "awareness," "verification," and "cautiousness". In order to reduce the lack of confirmation, it is necessary to secure and allocate appropriate personnel and create an environment where treatment can be concentrated. Nurses should also raise knowledge and the awareness of the importance of confirmation. In addition, it is necessary to improve the clinical judgment of new nurses in order to prevent near misses. And it is thought that new nurses will become more confident by accumulating experience and affirming their abilities from their superiors, seniors and colleagues.

Title Alternative Business Case: Tourism Campaigning Process of the Shimanami Kaido Expressway over the Setouchi Inner Sea in Japan
FullText URL interdisciplinary_1_21_28.pdf
Author Nakao, Hikari| Fujii, Daiji|
Abstract The Shimanami Kaido Expressway was visioned as a national project in the early 1970s after two tragic maritime accidents in the Setouchi Inner Sea. Since the express way connecting several islands between Hiroshima and Ehime prefecture was placed in use in 1999, it has always been a valuable means of transportation for islanders and commuters to date. In addition, with the proactive efforts made by local governments, such as Imabari City, Onomichi City, let alone with the central and prefectural governments, it has come to be acknowledged to be a sanctuary for sport cyclists. Eventually, it attracts attentions from all over Japan as a successful benchmark for both businesspeople as well as policy makers who are interested in destination management practices as part of promotion policies of reginal economies. This eventual success, however, had not been envisioned as such for a long time since the commencement of its public usage. It would rather seem that the plan had taken on its shape after a long period of many twists and turns. Furthermore, while local governments have been closely cooperating with different types of stakeholders including the actual islanders to promote the development plans, their ways of thinking are still far from unanimous. The purpose of this article is to provide business and policy students with materials that draw lessons for viewing lengthy socioeconomic processes like this case which eventually converted a nation-level, large-scale infrastructure development plan into an area-specific destination management project.

Title Alternative Rolling stockpile of medical supplies for pandemic preparedness: modeling and simulation
FullText URL interdisciplinary_1_17_20.pdf
Author Morita, Mizuki|
Abstract When a global pandemic of infectious diseases occurs, demand for medical supplies such as masks, disinfectants, and personal protective equipment will exceed the production capacity in normal times, consequently leading to serious shortages. Stockpiling is necessary to prepare for such situations. However, because pandemics are infrequent and might occur at any time, stockpile freshness is an important concern. As described in this paper, a “rolling stockpile” of medical supplies is proposed to prevent the medical supply stockpile from becoming too old. A formulation of a model and simulations based on it is presented. Results demonstrate that the method is applicable to the design of warehouses for rolling stockpiles, monitoring stockpile depletion during emergencies, and monitoring the process of recovery from emergencies.
