[H-TT21] Development and applications of environmental traceability methods

Tue. May 24, 2016 10:45 AM - 12:15 PM 101A (1F)

Convener:*Ichiro Tayasu(Research Institute for Humanity and Nature), Takanori Nakano(Research Institute for Humanity and Nature, Inter-University Research Institute Corporation National Institutes for the Humanities), Chair:Takanori Nakano(Research Institute for Humanity and Nature, Inter-University Research Institute Corporation National Institutes for the Humanities)

Modern society uses almost all the elements present in the natural world. Although there have long been calls for the sustainable use of the resources that provide these elements and the building of human societies that are in harmony with the environment, the survival of the human race is increasingly at risk as a result of qualitative changes to the environment as a whole. The International Council for Science is integrating international collaborative research on the global environment (WCRP, DIVERSITAS, IGBP, IHDP) under the Future Earth initiative. The Council is issuing a strong call for the creation of an innovative natural science that incorporates the humanities and social sciences in order to create societies that ensure the security of the human environment. Implementation by society of methodologies for diagnosing and tracking these various elements of the natural environment and their relationships with humans are now required.
Elements transport in the spheres on the surface earth and the human society and human body. Information on the concentrations and stable isotopes of elements is powerful in tracing the transportation of materials and have been applied into studies on the atmosphere-hydrosphere circulation, ecological service, and the life, health and history of humans. The development of integrated methodologies that can trace the chain of environmental factors based on these methods in individual academic fields, and the application to eco-labeling and monitoring will be vital to the success of the Future Earth initiative. We propose a session to discuss development and applications of environmental traceability methods to achieve traceable system.
