Earth´s Interior (Visiting Professors)

Studies of characteristics of the crust and mantle. Studies on the mechanical and chemical characteristics of material in the crust and mantle are carried out to refine knowledge of the seismogenic environment. Major research topics are as follows:

1) Studies on the deformation and stress accumulation process at subduction zone and inland areas.
2) Risk evaluation on mega-earthquakes.
