The field of earth and environmental sciences at Tohoku University comprises three research groups: Solid Earth Research Group, Global Environmental Research Group, and Planetary Evolution Research Group. These groups cooperate together in conducting research and education.
We have been preparing to conduct internationally cooperative education, mainly in collaboration with world-leading universities in Western countries and research institutes that provide research guidance to graduate students in the field of earth and environmental sciences, as shown in the figure. We plan to further increase the period of collaboration in the future. The field of earth and environmental sciences encompasses a wide range of research topics and techniques, and requires a strong interdisciplinary approach. Accordingly, it is necessary to promote collaboration with many institutions with diverse perspectives.
