A team of researchers from Spain and various countries in South America has published research on the influential leaders in the field of volcanic geomorphology, and Professor Gomez of the Graduate School of Maritime Sciences was placed 7th in the world, making him the number 1 in Japan in his field. According to Geosciences, the same research also places Japan in 9th place globally in terms of publication volume in the field of volcanic geomorphology.

To this news, Prof. Gomez commented that if it were the Olympics he would be far from getting a medal. He also added that for us at the Graduate School of Maritime Sciences, it is important to be at the top of our game, as one of our tasks is to shape the future leaders of tomorrow, both for the Japanese and the international stage.
