Abstract

Very high-energy cosmic-ray muons penetrating through a mountain enable us to probe the internal structure of volcanoes. An improved cosmic-ray muon detection system comprising two segmented detectors with multiplicity cut of the soft components of cosmic rays was developed. The test measurement for the volcano Mt. Asama is described.
