Approaching the mystery of the earth and other planets
to solve a variety of societal issues

Romantic science adventure

The research in our department targets natural phenomena in various temporal and spatial scales, from the birth of the Solar System approximately 4.6 billion years ago to the real-time movement of an atom. Researching how the Earth and other planets operate also meets the real-world demands, e.g., disaster prevention and weather forecasts.

Nature does not reveal its secrets easily. The department challenges the unknown world by developing a new method utilizing physics, chemistry and biology.
