Asahi reported that a group of geologists led by a Niigata University professor visited the Okinawa prefectural government on Tuesday to submit the results of their study on the soft seabed off the coast of Camp Schwab. The team reportedly concluded that some of the seawalls currently being built on the soft seabed for the Futenma replacement facility may gradually subside and collapse. The experts reportedly urged the Defense Ministry to conduct a geological survey in the vicinity to check whether the soft seabed runs deeper than the ministry’s estimate, which has been disputed by some scholars.
