The Japanese Connection : Serving since 1985

Japanese Petrology Interpreting Services

Minerals or rocks extracted from the Earth have great economic importance. Gasoline, plastics, synthetic fibres, and fertilizers come from petroleum deposits trapped in rock formations deep in the Earth and these materials are essential for use in industry and manufacturing. This is particularly true in Japan where both the petrochemical and automobile industries are substantial.

Accuracy is vital in the context of petrology, and language should be clear and unambiguous. When language barriers arise in this international field between firms, experts, companies, research institutions or manufacturers, The Japanese Connection can help.

We have established a large and diverse network of interpreters over the last 25 years and means that we are able to provide interpreters who are specialists in the field of petrology, with backgrounds or qualifications in this area.


Petrology in Japan

Japanese petrologists study the earth’s crust, particularly volcanic magma and rock; contribute to the discovery of new and sustainable fuel sources, like that of shale oil, and often work to probe and survey the mysterious deep-sea bed (particularly that of the Sea of Japan). Many work in the petroleum or oil industry or assist at mining firms or mineral extraction agencies, trying to discover new deposits of coal, oil or natural gas. Historically, petrologists also helped discover and develop mines that produce iron, copper, and other industrial metals also used in the automobile industry.

One of the most renowned Japanese petrologists was Dr. Shukusuké Kôzu, Professor Emeritus of Mineralogy and Petrology at Tohoku University. He studied in Japan, the U.S.A and the U.K and his work certainly emphasises the global nature of this field. In 1905, He spent weeks camping atop volcanoes Ontake and Norikura to make accurate topographic maps for his research.
