Last Update : 2017-11-01 14:00
Yokohama National University (host) and Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology (cohost) will hold an international symposium about SIP "Sea Zipangu Project"* as follows.
This symposium will introduce the international trends of the use of undersea resources and the preservation of ocean environment and the results of research in the areas of both natural and social sciences implemented through the project with a focus on investigations about ocean environment necessary for environmental consideration, observational monitoring and evaluation methods. In addition, at the symposium, the attendants will discuss environmental impact assessments and management for the use of undersea resources in a comprehensive discussion and will show that environmental consideration is the shortcut to development.
※It is known that noble metals, such as gold and silver, and precious mineral resources, such as copper, zinc and lead, exist at the bottom of the sea. SIP Next-Generation Technology for Ocean Resources Exploration (Sea Zipangu Project) is a project for implementing research and development of technologies for investigating about these precious mineral resources at low costs and with great efficiency.
