TERRA Group

We study the terrestrial ecosystem in the Arctic region and thereby explain its structure and influence on the global environment. We conduct on-the-spot surveys on carbon water cycle and permafrost, as well as researches on the dispersal and genetic diversity of large-sized mammals, fishes and plants, and their potential interactions with natural disasters. We also examine the volcanic activity and the seismicity to understand their generation mechanisms in order to provide predictions.
