Call for participation in J-DESC Core School [Core Isotope Analysis course FY2022]

J-DESC is accepting applications from foreign students to the Core Isotope Analysis course, program1(Oxygen / carbon isotope analysis of carbonate) of J-DESC Core School.

*ATTENTION1*: Lectures and practical trainings will be presented basically in Japanese. Participants can ask questions in English at any time. The textbook is prepared in Japanese.

*ATTENTION2*: With regard to security trade control, the revision of the ministerial ordinance to clarify the compliance standards for export vehicles and “deemed export control” came into effect on May 1, 2022.
