Discovering new deposits and potential fuel sources, their work is essential to both the Japanese and global economy. At The Japanese Connection, we can provide language assistance for all aspects of this globally important field.

Physical Geography

Japan's interest in physical geography is often in oceanography or biogeochemistry which contribute to knowledge about climate change and elucidate many environmental problems. The Japanese Connection can provide a tailored service, with accurate and precise interpreting, an understanding of industry-specific terminology.

Earth Sciences in Japan

Earth Sciences in Japan are of especial importance due to the seismic and volcanic activity the islands often experience. Its situation, in close proximity to the convergence of tectonic plates, means it is classed as a volcanic zone and much Japanese research is directed towards the prediction, observation and mitigation of natural disasters. JAMSTEC (Japanese Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology) both promotes and contributed to academic research in the Earth Sciences field. It comprises many research institutes who undertake research in a number of fields relating to earthquakes; tsunamis; marine-floor observation technologies; biogeoscience; ocean-land modelling and research into both tropical and cryosphere climates. It also collaborates with the United Nations on global projects like ‘climate-change solutions’ – an area of universal consequence.
