Lecture

Introduction to Gas Hydrate Research

The so-called “burning ice”, methane hydrate, which is attracting attention as a future energy resource, is a large storage of greenhouse gas. Students will learn about its properties and importance from the viewpoint of environmental science and global environmental science.

Gas Hydrate

Geotechnical Engineering I

Through lectures and exercises students will learn about the fundamental nature and phenomena of soil, which is essential for considering disaster prevention or the reduction of the effects of a ground disaster such as slope failures due to heavy rainfall or snow melting, liquefaction due to earthquakes, frost phenomenon characteristic to cold regions and so on.
