The
Technical Experience:
1. Physical property: I participated in Ocean Drilling Program Legs 146 and 156 as a physical properties specialist. My shorebased study focused on tectonic dewatering and drilling disturbance on the basis of X-ray CT-scan analysis.

2. Marine geology: I often join in research cruise for piston coring, seismic reflection survey and seafloor swath mapping. My doctor thesis is concerned with prism growth and thermal structure of the Nankai accretionary prism derived from sidescan imagery and gas hydrate BSRs, respectively. I also use submersibles for investigation of seafloor sedimentary and deformation structures.

3. Structural geology: I have studied Cretaceous and Tertiary accretionary complexes in Japan to understand process of wet-sediment deformations since BSc course.
