Union Session

U-01 [EE] Future of Scientific Publishing in Geosciences
*This session accepts abstract submissions only from invited authors.
Hodaka Kawahata
Hirokuni Oda
May 23rd
AM1・AM2
Room:101
Open access publication is getting more and more popular in acadmic publishing. Accessibility to the scientific results enables further developments in science, technology and society. Also, availavility, reliability and reusability of scientific data is important. On the other hand, human and financial resources are needed in realizing and maintaining the above mentioned conditions. Here we invite several keynote presenters working on innovations in acadmic publishing from all over the world. In the session, future of scientific publishing in geosciences will be presented and discussed.

U-02 [EE] JpGU-AGU great debate

May 22nd
AM1・AM2
Room:IC
The Earth is an ocean planet. We at times feel the environmental changes or geohazards that affect our lives. These are signs of the complex Earth behavior, for which oceans and the underlying oceanic lithospheres play key roles. Scientific ocean drilling uniquely delivers samples and data from boreholes to be scrutinized and synthesized across disciplines in geo-biosciences, and to validate the hypotheses that predict our future state. This session will highlight recent achievements and future prospectus, especially those using "Chikyu".

U-04 [EJ] How JpGU will manage environment and disaster?
Koji Okumura
Daisaku Kawabata
Hidetsugu Yoshida
May 23rd
AM1・AM2
Room:101
In this session, we share the activities of member associations related with recent major disasters, and discuss how Japan Geoscience Union sets up the framework to enhance the real cooperation. In 2016, Japan Academic Network for Disaster Reduction was established to promote extensive interdisciplinary collaboration. Japan Geoscience Union joined the network together with many of its member associations. The duplex structure of the network and the Japan Geoscience Union requires us to define our role and pursuit it.

U-05 [EJ] Innovative research at the intersection of geoscience and health science
*This session accepts abstract submissions only from invited authors.

Room:201A
Around 15,000 people will have completed a doctorate in Japan every year. National Institute of Science and Technology Policy announced the 1st report of "Japan Doctoral Human Resource Profiling"-FY2012 doctoral graduates cohort- in 2015. The proportion is about 60% to remain in academia among the graduates, more than 70% among them is in a fixed-term post of science field. Even life events are delayed due to the job insecurity. In such a situation, JpGU Committee for Diversity Management and Talent Pool prepared a survival seminar for young researchers to help them to be survived in academia.

O-02 [JJ] Geoscientific terminology in school education
*This session accepts abstract submissions only from invited authors.

May 21st
AM1・AM2
Room:201A
Geoscience education is mainly conducted in two subjects in Japanese upper secondary schools (high schools). In some cases technical terms and their concepts are not unique, and up-to-date results are not treated in upper secondary school textbooks. This public session targets a relationship between the fields of geoscience and school education in Japan, using terminological analyses of these textbooks.

O-03 [JJ] Recent Advances in Earth and Planetary Science
*This session accepts abstract submissions only from invited authors.

O-04 [JJ] Kitchen Earth Science -advantages of using thoughtful hands in experiments-
Miwa Kuri
Kei Kurita
Ichiro Kumagai
May 20th
PM1
Room:CH-A
"Kitchen Earth Science" had started from two concepts. One is a need for intuitive materials to present/display research products to public. The second is the role of simple experiments as a tool of brain-activation in the university education such as the freshmen class and graduate class. Recently we can provide DIY instruments at low costs but with sufficient resolutions/precisions. In the proposed session we focus on the advantages of using thoughtful hands in experiments under various situations.

O-05 [JJ] Poster presentations by senior high school students
*This session accepts abstract submissions only from high school students. *The application will open on January 23rd.

O-06 [JJ] Geoparks in Japan -Lesson to be learned from the failure-
*This session accepts oral presentations only from invited authors. Poster presentations are widely accepted.
Noritaka Matsubara May 20th
PM1
Room:IC
Japanese Geoparks have a lot of good practices from various Geopark activity since 2009, we could share which good experiences and good practices. It was a process of trial and error, because Geopark does not have a standard type. In this session, we will present and discuss those failures we learned.
