Title: The research of the effects of aerosol absorption ＋ my research career until today and the research life in the overseas
Speaker: Dr. Teppei Yasunari（Visiting Researcher, Universities Space Research Association(USRA)）
Chair: Associate Prof. Takayuki Shiraiwa (Institute of Low Temperature Science/ Graduate School of Environmental Science）
It past already 2 years and half after I moved to USA. Actually I got Ph.D in this Graduate School in March 2008, then worked as a postdoctoral scientist for one year in Research Institute for Humanity and Nature, Kyoto. So I would like to tell you briefly the advantages and disadvantages of working in overseas for young researchers. Also I will introduce you how I spend the research life in my graduate student time, and how it affect to my present status.
For the research, I will present you two topics.
The first one is about the snowfall modeling, and this is my main task in NASA/GSFC. The other one is the estimation of Cs-137 fallout deposition from Fukushima Atomic Reactor to through Japan after "The 2011 off the Pacific coast of Tohoku Earthquake" using climatic data and atmospheric transportation model. This research is volunteer international collaborative research and has no relationship with my work in NASA, but I contribute this as a visiting researcher in USRA. Also this is a collaboration research with The Norwegian Institute for Air Research, The University of Tokyo and Nagoya University.
