About this book

Language: Japanese

Researchers of the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) research one of the harshest environments on this planet: the deep sea. The sea, which occupies 70% of the surface area of ​​the earth, is indispensable for humankind. Studies here do not just reveal deep-sea organisms, but also subseafloor organisms, the origin of life and astrobiology, the mechanism of earthquakes revealed by seafloor movements, seafloor mineral resources, and global warming. In this book, you can read about this immersive deep-sea research from the researchers and engineers who actually board research vessels and collect samples and data onsite.

Summary in Japanese:
極限ともいえる過酷な環境で、深海の研究を続けてきた海洋研究開発機構(JAMSTEC)の研究者たちが、深海を研究しなければわからない、生物や地球のしくみ、地震との関連や人類との関わりについて解説。深海生物だけでなく、海底下生物、生命の起源、地球外生物にまで及ぶ生命のことから、巨大地震後の海底変動から見えてきた地震のメカニズム、海底の鉱物資源や、地球温暖化との関係など、あらゆる「深海」がわかる1冊!

地球の表面積の7割を占める、人類にとって欠くことのできない海。その中でも「深海」は海洋のほとんどを占め、地球には深海を研究しなければわからない、生物や地球のしくみ、地震との関連や人類との関わりが多くあります。人類は水深約1万900mまで到達し、さらに深海の知識が深まり、重要性が明らかになってきました。
海洋研究開発機構(JAMSTEC)は、極限ともいえる過酷な環境で、困難も多い深海の調査を続けてきました。実際に調査船に乗り、現場でサンプルやデータを採取している、研究者や技術者が執筆した、臨場感あふれた深海研究がわかるのが本書です。
