Comprehensive study and education of planetary sciences via various approaches
Studying atmospheres, plasmaspheres, and magnetospheres of Earth and planets based on space exploration and ground observation. We use "Akatsuki" (a Venus explorer), International Space Station (JEM-GLIMS), Micro-satellites, and Pirka Telescope in Nayoro, Hokkaido.
Studying material evolution during the Solar System formation, evolution of the interior structure, surface environment, and atmosphere of Earth, planets, and satellites theoretically and experimentally. We participate in planetary exploration missions, such as "Hayabusa2" and "MMX."
LeadKuramoto/Kamata lab, Experimental Space Science (Hashimoto) lab
Studying climatology and meteorology of Earth, Mars, and exoplanets based on large-scale numerical simulations of planetary atmospheres. We develop and operate a computer network to advance informatization of Earth and planetary sciences.
