Mount Fuji’s Missing Snow


https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/images/147780/mount-fujis-missing-snow

Even as record snowfall has clobbered Japan’s western coast, much of the country’s eastern half has avoided major snow accumulation this winter. Notably, Mount Fuji’s iconic snow cap—which is normally visible throughout December—has been small or absent this year.

The mountain peak, the tallest in Japan, did get a dusting on September 28, 2020, its first snowfall of the year. But that melted off quickly, and Fuji’s snow cap remained elusive in the coming months. Normalized Difference Snow Index (NDSI) observations from NASA’s Terra satellite indicate that snow cover on the mountain last month was among the lowest in the satellite's 20-year record for any December.

Ground-based weather stations made similar observations. “Stations around Mount Fuji recorded much less precipitation than usual in December,” said Toshio Iguchi, a remote sensing scientist based at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. “Through December 24, it was only 10 percent of an average year.” Weather data also indicate that temperatures around the mountain were warm during much of December.

In the images at the top of the page, the bare upper slopes of the mountain were visible to the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on the Landsat 8 satellite on January 1, 2021. For comparison, the other image, also acquired by OLI, shows Mount Fuji on December 29, 2013, on a day it was snowier. The mountain had a slightly above average amount of snow in December 2013, according to the Terra NDSI observations.

Toward the end of December 2020, the mountain finally received some snow. But even chillier January weather did not guarantee that the snow cap would last. After a few days, the snow cap was much reduced as temperatures creeped above freezing. And part of the snow cap was likely blown away by wind, according to Weather News.

While local weather conditions are key to whether Fuji’s snow cap is present on any given day, long-term climate data indicates that conditions on the peak are changing. One recent study found the mountain’s timberline had moved upslope by 30 meters (100 feet) over the past four decades, likely due to a 2 degree Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) increase in summer temperatures near the peak.

Oh yes, involuntarily funny translations. Japan has them, China has them, there's books and websites dedicated to the phenomenon. And, as much as there is taxpayer's money involved, an easy fix for the less embarrassing future.

I've spent a lot of time in Tokyo over the years. I took this picture somewhere along the Arakawa tram line in Tokyo back in March 2001. I like it for a lot of reasons: the materials that are visible, the washing hanging out, the telegraph pole and the blue sky. The advertising sign completed the shot for me because of the device I was snapping with on that day (a disposable Fujifilm camera that cost ¥990). To me, the picture just says 'life' and it reminds me of everything that is new in the world, not old or decaying. Set against the seeming permanence of the sky, the concrete and brick cladding is cracked and the steel is corroding. The scene reminds me of the impermanence of things and the notion that out of the old the new is continually being generated. #newhere #photography #tokyo #japan #arakawaline

Kondo Isami — Badass of the Week
“Not one of the paper screens was left intact, all of them having been smashed to pieces. The wooden boards of the ceiling were also torn apart where men who had been hiding under the floorboards were stabbed with spears from below. The tatami mats in a number of the rooms, both upstairs and downstairs, were spotted with fresh blood. Particularly pitiful were arms and feet, and pieces of facial skin with the hair still attached scattered about.”

—Nagakura Shinpachi, assistant vice commander of the Shinsengumi
Wow, absolutely badass troops and what a massacre they did. Seriously.
