[B-BC03] Earth and Planetary Science Frontiers for Life and Global Environment

convener:Yoshinori Takano(Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC)), Yohey Suzuki(Graduate School of Science, The University of Tokyo), Shingo Kato(RIKEN), Keisuke Fukushi(Institute of Nature & Environmental Technology, Kanazawa University)

Earth and planetary science is currently capable of sampling from three frontiers: space, deep ocean and deep underground for the study of the origin and evolution of life. Next generation sequencing technology of nucleic acids and nanotechnology driven innovation of solid characterizations are very powerful to expand our understanding of many fields of earth and planetary sciences. It is also important for us to be aware of global warming and climate change that dramatically affect biodiversity, biological activities and elemental cycling. The aim of this session is to cross the border of science sections to explore the frontiers of earth and planetary science.
