抄録

We have been conducting flux monitoring observations of Sgr A* at 8 GHz and 2 GHz using the NICT Kashima-Koganei VLBI system (109 km baseline) since mid-February 2013. The primary objective of the monitoring is a search for flux variation which is expected to be caused by the interaction between the G2 cloud and the accretion disk. Until 2013 September 22, we observed Sgr A* for 39 days, five hours on each day. Four quasars (NRAO 530, PKS 1622-253, PKS 1622-297, PKS 1921-293) were also observed as flux calibrators every 6 minutes. No significant change nor variation has been detected in the 8 GHz flux density of Sgr A*. The 8 GHz flux density was 0.81 ± 0.07 Jy (preliminary), while no significant 2 GHz emission was detected by our system. We will continue monitoring as often as possible until at least 2014 May.
