Class Objectives
/Class Outline
To learn basic knowledge and experimental techniques required for analyses and interpretation of natural environments through laboratory and field studies. 
Class Schedule The following subjects will be instructed as part of: Laboratory Course in Natural Environmental Sciences C.
・How to use Excel: For understanding experimental results, as well as for visualization of theories, a skill of data analysis is required. By using the Excel and its supplementary software Visual Basic Applications (VBA), we will learn the basic data analyses and a repetitive processing.
We use Excel preinstalled in your personal computer, so please do not forget to bring your computer.
(Namiki: 1-3)
・Colloid and interface science is the key to understand environmental issues such as poluted air, water, soil and environmental hormone. We will learn some basic ideas of this field through experiments.
(Villeneuve, Nunome: 4-7)
・Evaluation of biodiversity in a forest ecosystem.
(Okuda, Yamada: 8-11)
・Permeabilities and pore structures of rocks: We will measure the permeability and the size and shape of pores by a permeability test and a water-expulsion method.
Stereographic projection: In order to quantitatively describe surfaces and their directions observed in strata or faults, we will study stereographic projection.
(Yokoyama, Hiroayama: 12-15)
