Lunchtime Special Lecture

We are honored to welcome the world class researchers to deliver lectures about the latest Hot Topics during lunchtime!
This year's lectures are the recipients of the 2nd Nishida Prize.

DAY 1 : May 20 (SUN)

Lecturer Yoshinori Takano (JAMSTEC)
Title On the dawn of “Life”:probing from chemistry
Description “Chemistry” is a fruitful scientific discipline having wide spectra, including the approach to geochemistry and astrochemistry. Cutting-edge analytical chemistry will also provide unseen point of view in Earth and Planetary Sciences. Here, I’d like to discuss on the dawn of life and those perspectives by probing from chemistry.

Lecturer Makiko Nagasawa
(Department of Physics, School of Medicine, Kurume University)
Title Resonant planets
Description Planets revolve due to gravity of its host star. Planets evolve due to the gravitation between the planets. The long term piling up of small gravitation between planets makes a big difference in planetary orbit and causes a great diversity of planetary systems. Let's see how the gravitational interaction affects the orbits of extrasolar planets.


DAY 2 : May 21 (MON)

Lecturer Michiyo Yamamoto-Kawai
(Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology)
Title Ocean Acidification in the Arctic Ocean
Description The ocean absorbs a large amount of CO2 we release into the atmosphere every year. This is changing the chemistry of seawater and increasing acidity of seawater, a process called “ocean acidification”. The Arctic Ocean is known as one of the most vulnerable region to ocean acidification. In this lecture, based on observations in the last 20 years, features and the state of Arctic Ocean acidification is summarized.

Lecturer Shingo Watanabe
(Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology)
Title Climate model and my interest: from the atmospheric wave motion to the earth in the mirror
Description I have two or three activities that are supposing to be lifeworks in my researcher life. One is elucidating the nature and role of earth’s atmospheric waves and turbulence by developing hi-top and high-resolution global climate models. The second is establishing an Earth system model truly necessary for the development of Earth system science by coupling and integrating various systems of the earth. Another thing is something that does not form an image right now. Please join my disordered immature talk rather than a sophisticated lecture.


DAY 3 : May 22 (TUE)

Lecturer Naoki Uchida
(RCPEVE, Graduate School of Science, Tohoku University)
Title The studies of interplate earthquakes and slow slip by using small repeating earthquakes
Description Small repeating earthquakes are repeated rupture of a small fault patch that is loaded by interplate creep in the surrounding area. Taking advantage of the characteristics of the repeating earthquakes, they are used in many recent seismological studies. In this talk, I introduce the studies on the process of interplate earthquakes and slow slip by utilizing the characteristics of repeating earthquakes.

Lecturer Yusuke Ebihara
(Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere, Kyoto University)
Title Understanding of substorm and magnetic storm by means of large-scale computer simulation
Description The magnetosphere is the region where Earth’s magnetic field dominates. Substorm and magnetic storm provide an important clue to the understanding of the dynamics of the magnetosphere. By using large-scale computer simulation, substorm and magnetic storm are found to develop in a complicated manner, incorporating with various elements. This talk is intended to present the dynamics of the magnetosphere revealed by the simulation under the policy "deal with complex situations as a complex system.”


DAY 4 : May 23 (WED)

Lecturer Masahiro Ikoma (The University of Tokyo)
Title Diversity of gas-rich planets in the solar system and beyond
Description In the Solar System there are four gas-rich planets, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Also, a great number of gas-rich planets have been identified beyond the Solar System. In this lecture I will overview our current understanding of the diversity and possible origins of such planets.

Lecturer Hiroshi Tanimoto
(National Institute for Environmental Studies, Center for Global Environmental Research, Global Atmospheric Chemistry Section)
Title Exploring biogeochemical linkage between the atmosphere and the ocean
Description Many volatile organics dissolved in the surface ocean originated from the marine ecosystem, and once emitted into the overlying atmosphere, they have great impacts on the atmospheric chemistry and the Earth’s climate, playing an important role in the global environmental change. New technological developments provided new insights for better understanding of biochemical mechanisms as well as distributions and air-sea fluxes of these organics.


DAY 5 : May 24 (THU)

Lecturer Taku Tsuchiya
(Geodynamics Research Center, Ehime University)
Title Deep Earth Sciences from Ab Initio Simulation
Description Recent progress in theoretical mineral physics has been dramatic. It is now possible to predict various physical and chemical properties of deep Earth materials quantitatively in ultrahigh-pressure and temperature condition. I will discuss new views on the deep Earth composition and dynamics inferred from research outcomes on the thermoelastic and thermochemical properties of lower mantle and core materials.

Lecturer Yuzo Miyazaki
(Institute of Low Temperature Science, Hokkaido University)
Title Atmosphere–Biosphere interactions via atmospheric organic aerosols
Description It is crucial to quantitatively understand the origin of biogenic organic aerosol in the atmosphere, because organics in atmospheric aerosol particles are closely linked to climate impact of aerosol as well as biogeochemical cycle of bioelements, such as nitrogen and carbon. Origin of natural organic aerosols, mechanisms of their climate effect, and possible feedback on natural ecosystem will be discussed.

International Mixer Luncheon 2018

We welcome each and every one of our student members and early career scientist to the International Mixer Luncheon 2018!
