La conférence s'intitule : Practical application of snow melting system using groundwater in Japan
A large part of Japan is subject to severe weather in winter. Currently, 20 the total area of Japan.
In 1961, a new snow melting system was introduced in which groundwater was used, it’s sprinkled from pipes installed on the roads directly over the snow for melting. This system became the main snow melting technology especially in the Hokuriku region which is middle part of Japan and along the coast of the Japan Sea.
As this system use a large amount of groundwater and the water was not recharged, drop of groundwater level and land subsidence became serious problems in the area with the snow melting system. Hence, a new and better solution was needed and the snow melting system without sprinkling groundwater was developed.
Practical application of snow melting system using groundwater in Japan will be introduced.
Bienvenue à tous!
