Ibaraki University Geological Information Utilization Project consists of Ibaraki University students who interested regional contribution by geology. Our project team mainly support Geopark using geological information that have not been well known generally.
Until 2017, we published “geo tourism maps” of 15 sites of North Ibaraki Geopark and performed geo tours using these maps. Furthermore, we committed North Ibaraki Geopark Promotion Council and drew maps and signboards, and assisted geo tours. But in 2017, North Ibaraki Geopark is not recognized by Japan Geopark Network (hereinafter called “JGN”). We will produce information about geology and the student’s point of view to be recognized by JGN. Also, we will cooperate with Mt. Tsukuba area Geopark, extend our activities and contribute to the region through using geological information.
