Several applicants may qualify for pre-arrival admission, which enables them to take entrance examinations in their own countries by using the on-line communication system like the Zoom or Webex if it is available. If it is difficult to take the interview by using the on-line communication system there are some cases we cannot accept their applications. To apply for pre-arrival admission, submit the documents listed below for screening by November 4, 2022 by email. If interested, contact the Academic Affairs Office of GSES before proceeding for further information.
1. Admission Application form with ID photo (The designated form must be used, and will be provided upon request. The photo should be taken on August 4, 2022 or later, 4 x 3 cm, upper body, facing forward with no headwear).
2. Curriculum Vitae (The designated form must be used, and will be provided upon request)
3. Graduation Certificate (or Certificate of Expected Graduation)
4. Academic Transcript
5. Copy of passport “face page”
6. For the Master’s Course, a 1,000-word essay on the reasons for the application and your research plan within the program
7. For the Doctoral Course, a 1,500-word essay on the reasons for the application and your research plan within the program
8. Applicants should submit a copy of TOEFL, TOEIC or IELTS score sheet. The validity of the score sheet is within 2 years preceding the date of entrance examination. 
9. Applicants from EEA member countries should submit a Consent to Transfer and Process Personal Data.

Announcement of Pre-arrival Examination Candidates

Applicants selected as candidates for pre-arrival examination based on document screening will be notified by the beginning of January 2023 and should send all additional forms for the entrance examination. These forms must be submitted with the examination fee (JPY 30,000) by January 20, 2023 after receiving the notification.
* See the GSES website for details of the regular entrance examination.

Entrance Examination and Interviews in Candidates’ Own Countries

Entrance examinations and pre-arrival examination interviews may be held in candidates’ own countries by using the on-line communication system like the Zoom or Webex on a day designated individually. Information on exact date and time will be provided after screening. Interviewees will be asked about their Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis and future plans for study on the Master’s or Doctoral courses, respectively.


Enrollment without Pre-arrival Examination

Date and time: 16:45-18:00 on October 17th (Mon) 2022
Place: D201 in GSES

Title: Occurrence and risk assessment of emerging micropollutants 
in a water diversion project (分水嶺事業における新興微量汚染物質の発生とリスク評価)
Language: English
Chair: OKINO Tatsufumi(統合環境科学部門)


Abstract: Water diversion is increasingly utilized for water supply, flood control, irrigation, and water quality improvement in many water bodies globally. Micropollutants such as perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) can be transported via dual-source water diversion projects during water diversion and flood discharge, which may negatively impact both receiving water bodies. However, the sources, spatiotemporal variations, and fluxes of PFAAs under water diversion projects remain unclear. Here, we quantified 18 PFAA compounds in the surface water of the Wangyu River in eastern China, which transfers water between the Yangtze River and Taihu Lake during water diversion (January 2020) and flooding periods (July 2020) for the following objectives: (1) to investigate the occurrence and sources of signature PFAAs in both flow directions in this highly urbanized and populated region; (2) to characterize the relative contribution of individual PFAAs and explore how water diversion and flooding impacts the PFAA pollution; and (3) to estimate the flux of PFAAs (kg month-1) diverted into or discharged from Taihu Lake via the Wangyu River, to provide a reference value for the ecological safety of a dual-source water diversion project and its receiving water bodies.

EES seminar(旧:研究院アワー)のご案内

Title: 日本海堆積物に記録された過去の東アジア冬モンスーン変動 
(Reconstruction of east Asian winter monsoon in the past using sediment
archives in the Japan Sea)
Language: Japanese
Chair: 堀之内武(地球圏科学部門)


東アジアの気候は、夏の多雨と冬の厳寒で特徴づけられ、それぞれ東アジア夏モンスーン、冬モンスーンと呼ばれている。夏モンスーン期には、揚子江の流出に伴って塩分が低く栄養塩に富んだ東シナ海表層水が対馬海峡を通して日本海に流入し、日本海表層の成層と生物生産を維持している。また冬モンスーンによる日本海表層水の冷却は、海氷の生産と表層水の中深層への沈み込みによる換気をもたらしている。一方、日本海の海底堆積物への有機物の埋没フラックスは、生物生産と底層水酸化還元度に依存した有機物の分解とに制御されるので、夏モンスーンによる栄養塩に富む東シナ海沿岸水の日本海への張り出しと、冬モンスーンによる底層水の換気の程度のバランスで決まると考えられる。2013年に行われた統合深海掘削計画第346次調査航海(IODP Exp. 346)では、日本海の中で330 mから 3429 mにいたる様々な水深の7地点から連続な堆積物が掘削された。水深の最も浅いU1427地点を除くU1422-U1426およびU1430地点の堆積相は、千年スケールで繰り返す明暗互層をなす半遠洋性堆積物で、それらの明暗パターンは同時間面として広く対比でき、どのサイトの年代モデルも確立している。また日本海堆積物の明度は、有機炭素(TOC)含有量と強く逆相関することが分かっているので、堆積物写真、堆積物全体のガンマ線吸収率(GRA)からそれぞれ算出される明度、乾燥かさ密度を用いることで、各地点各時代のTOCフラックスを計算できる。そこで過去における冬モンスーンによる日本海中深層の換気パターンを復元するために、TOCフラックスの深度分布の時代変化を利用し、過去100万年間にわたる数万年スケールでの冬モンスーン変動の評価を試みる。
