In this section, research is informed by predictions of environmental changes resulting from the effects of global warming and human conflict on the ocean environment and forest ecosystems. Based on new efforts in the area of active earthquake prediction, researchers in the Environmental Sciences Section are developing a type of future-oriented environmental earth science that is firmly tied to social interest in global ecosystem maintenance, disaster prevention and safety education.

Students analyze long-term environmental changes of the planet and the responses of various types of life forms to these environmental changes, as well as evolution and related models, in order to examine the magnitude of future global environmental changes and our response to them.

Topics covered include environmental change analysis on a molecular scale and the examination of biodiversity on a molecular level, environmental materials science that focuses on molecules, and science aimed at examining environmental problems, including ethical problems related to human survival and maintenance of the global ecosystem.
