 Professor Thorpe said, "So far, both universities have produced many remarkable research results in paleoclimatology research. In the future, we will open this to not only both universities but also the research community around the world, and archeology. I want to accelerate the development of paleoclimatology. "

 In response to this, Director Nakagawa said, "The range of applications of the technology made possible by this alliance is wide. It will be meaningful to solve many problems in geology and archeology."
