Earthquake research institute was founded in 1925, triggered by the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923. The Earthquake Research Institute is responsible for scientifically understanding earthquakes and volcanic phenomena and mitigating disasters caused by them. In order to fulfill this mission, we are conducting a comprehensive study not only of earthquakes and volcanic phenomena but also of the Earth's internal dynamics as its root. Approximately 80 faculty members who have various specialties such as seismology, volcanology, geophysics, geochemistry, geology, geodesy, applied mathematics, information science, civil engineering, earthquake engineering, etc. are conducting research at the Earthquake Research Institute I am engaged in education.
