Field of expertise (Grants-in-aid for Scientific Research classification) 【 display / non-display

  • Solid earth and planetary physics

 

Research project summary 【 display / non-display

  • Water plays key roles in seismic and volcanic activities. Geophysical mapping of water is critical for understanding these activities. It requires thorough understanding of physical properties of fluid-bearing rocks. Our research group has been studying seismic and electrical properties.
