Message

It is thought that the huge earthquake will be generated around Japan in future. Earthquake damages were affected by local site effect and strong ground motion.
We are working on the earthquake disaster mitigation. Major topics are local site effect assessment and strong ground motion prediction.
Furthermore, we are engaged in technical cooperation to the foreign countries.
