Probing unknown causal relationships hidden in Earth systems

To identify interrelationships between changes in Earth systems and human activity, we will develop methodologies for integrating the vast amounts of data generated by JAMSTEC R&D activities, and mathematical analysis methods for efficiently processing the resulting integrated data. We will also support the resolution of policy issues and development of sustainable socioeconomic systems by generating and disseminating information tailored to various needs. We will additionally endeavor to expand this initiative to encompass other relevant organizations both in Japan and overseas so as to build a framework for generating even more advanced and useful information.
