Name of Lecture (和文)環境・地球科学特殊講義Ⅰ
(英文)Advanced Lecture on Earth and Environmental Sciences I
University to provide Tohoku University Credit(S) 2
Instructor (Tohoku University)Prof. Michihiko NAKAMURA; Prof. Tomoki NAKAMURA; Prof. Motohiko MURAKAMI; Asso. Prof. Akio SUZUKI
(Cooperation institutions)Prof. Daniel FROST; Prof. Tomoo KATSURA; Professor emeritus Hans SCHMINCKE
Content To understand the global circulation of volatile elements, we provide lectures in English including the latest research outcomes on:
(1) Migration theory of volatile elements in the crust and upper mantle, transfer of volatile elements between the interior and atmosphere/ocean of the Earth through volcanic activity;
(2) Abundance of volatile components in the Earth’s deep interior and their influence on the core/mantle dynamics;
(3) Characteristics of volatile components contained in extraterrestrial materials and the roles of volatile elements in early solar system evolution.
Graduate students are expected to acquire not only the ability to conduct cutting-edge research but also communication skills through discussion-based lectures with students from cooperation institutions attending simultaneously.
Credit points are allocated to the first subject that each graduate student selects from the above (1) to (3) for the lecture.

Name of Lecture (和文)環境・地球科学実践演習Ⅰ
(英文)Practical Course on Earth and Environmental Sciences I
University to provide Tohoku University Credit(S) 2
Instructor (Tohoku University)Prof. Michihiko NAKAMURA
(Cooperation institutions)Professor emeritus Hans SCHMINCKE
Content According to one theory, the release of volatile elements from the interior to the surface of the Earth through volcanic activity causes climate change such as global warming, leading to the melting of glaciers. This decreases the pressure of the magma reservoir, leading to a further increase in volcanic activity. Thus, volcanic activity is a key factor in the interaction between the atmosphere and the solid earth. In the practical course, we are planning to go on a geological field trip to the Atlantic Canary Islands, one of the hot-spots where such research on volcanoes is being conducted. Graduate students will study the history of geological activity and geological overview, etc. of the Canary Islands hot-spots in advance, and observe volcanic products and geographical features, etc. on the islands. Reports must be submitted after the field trip. The students will be able to observe geological phenomena of a type and scale not found in Japan. Credit points are allocated to the first subject that each graduate student selects from the above.

Name of Lecture (和文)環境・地球科学特別実験Ⅰ
(英文)Advanced Experiment on Earth and Environmental Sciences I
University to provide Tohoku University Credit(S) 2
Instructor (Tohoku University)Faculty staff
(Cooperation institutions)Faculty staff
Content Credit points are granted when students of the Graduate School of Tohoku University engage in doctoral research for a total of at least 6 months in principle in cooperation institutions while attending the doctoral course. This is a prerequisite for granting the Jointly Supervised Degree through the International Joint Graduate Program in Earth and Environmental Sciences. Graduate school students select their research subject from the available subjects prepared by the faculty staff of Tohoku University and determine the details in consultation with the faculty staff. The students conduct experiments and analyses and can receive advice from faculty staff of cooperation institutions. The outcomes of the research will be presented at a symposium or school next year or later, and discussed with the students of cooperation institutions in order to prepare a doctoral thesis in the Tohoku University.
