Science and Technology
I’m interested in the genetical linkage between global environmental changes through the Earth’s history and ore formation/preservation processes. By using geochemical methods such as Re and Os isotopes, I’m conducting the researches on metallogenesis of various deposits. Japan has the world’s 6th largest exclusive economic zone and a plenty amounts of seafloor mineral resources are distributed. Through the research cruises, I’m investigating the genesis of seafloor hydrothermal sulfide deposit, ferromanganese crust/nodule and REY-rich mud. I want to unravel genesis and enrichment mechanism of metal elements through the collaboration with geology, mineralogy, geochemistry, geophysics and structural geology.
