[M-TT44] Frontiers in Geochemistry: Prospect for geochemistry in 30 years

Tue. May 26, 2015 6:15 PM - 7:30 PM Convention Hall (2F)

Convener:*Takafumi Hirata(Graduate School of Science, Kyoto University), Yoshio Takahashi(Department of Earth and Planetary Science, Graduate School of Science, The University of Tokyo), Urumu Tsunogai(Graduate School of Environmental Studies, Nagoya University), Hajime Obata(Marine inorganic chemistry division, Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute, University of Tokyo), Shogo Tachibana(Department of Natural History Scieces, Hokkaido University), Katsuhiko Suzuki(Institute for Research on Earth Evolution, Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology), Gen Shimoda(Geological Survey of Japan, AIST), Hiroyuki Kagi(Geochemical Laboratory, Graduate School of Science, University of Tokyo), Yusuke Yokoyama(Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute, University of Tokyo), Tetsuya Yokoyama(Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Graduate School of Science and Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology)

A variety of innovative researches have been emerged in earth and planetary sciences by virtue of the development of new chemical methods associated with novel approaches. To conduct more detailed and complicated investigation in modern geosciences, highly precise and accurate scientific data are badly needed. This session is aimed to provide an opportunity to gather various geoscientists to have a strategic discussion on geochemical frontier, especially by people who work on devising new geochemical methods as well as those who would like to apply such innovative techniques. We welcome a wide range of cutting-edge geochemical topics regarding technical development, including exploratory researches that can potentially be a breakthrough of earth and planetary sciences. Moreover, we welcome any presentations related to the direction of geochemistry in next 30 years. Such presentations will be arranged in the latter part of the session, for which we expect hot discussion to develop geochemistry in future.
