The monitoring aims to provide a comprehensive dataset to infer any possible relation between gas geochemistry and seismic activity in the surrounding region. The measurements will last until the end of May 2018.
Our manuscript on the tritium release form the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear accident just appeared on-line:

Our recent reconstruction of paleosalinity (and the related lake levels) using the diatom record from Lake Van is available on-line:
