Understanding and coexisting with the environment

Humans are dependent on the Earth’s environment, which consists of the planet itself and the diverse array of organisms that inhabit it. In recent years, this system has become rife with problems. Yet we must understand the system if we want to overcome these problems and find a way to coexist with the Earth. In collaboration with other institutions, our laboratory conducts environmental surveys and biological and chemical analyses to understand how substances circulate, as well as the biological and chemical reactions involved. We also seek to find applications for our research.

For Society

Knowledge about the chemical reactions associated with the circulation of substances is key to understanding the environment. Currently we are trying to unravel the mechanism of and quantify methane decomposition in the ocean.
