Osaka University Future Research Initiative Group Support Project - "Geomics: Ecosphere Planetary Science Blazing New Trails with the Latest Mass Spectrometric Techniques"

2016-3-31 (Thu) 10:00 - 20:00

On March 31, 2016 at the Assembly Hall in Osaka University Hall on the Toyonaka Campus, the Osaka University Future Research Initiative Group Support Project will be holding the "Geomics: Ecosphere Planetary Science Blazing New Trails with the Latest Mass Spectrometric Techniques" seminar.

Geomics is the exhaustive analysis of atoms and molecules that exist in ecospheres, environments that envelop the earth, based on the latest in mass spectrometric techniques. These atoms and molecules are called geomes. Through geomics, it has become possible to decipher changes in ecospheres from the past to the present, and forecast the global environment in the near future.

At this symposium, we'll take a look at various forms of stress on the environments that envelop the Earth, such as falling meteorites, movement in the Earth's crust, and material cycles, and hear about the latest geomics research from researchers performing research on what kinds of environmental stresses have occurred, when and to what extent the effects of this stress took place, and how the ecospheres adapted to this stress, as well as from researchers developing technologies with which to perform geomics.
