Prof. OHNO Masao

Geophysics (Geomagnetism, Archaeomagnetism, Paleoenvironment)

Researcher Information

Message for high school students

I research the earth, with a particular focus on such areas as its magnetic field, the paleoenvironment, and archaeomagnetism.

Learning about Earth’s past provides us with significant clues for forecasting its future.

In geosciences research, you’ll work with many researchers and other staff to observe, collect samples, and conduct analysis, learning a great deal and growing in the process. I’m looking forward to working in this appealing field with you all.
