Visitors from the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC), Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), and Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) toured Carnegie’s Broad Branch Road Campus on August 10, 2017. Their visit served as an introduction about opportunities for collaborations between Japanese research organizations and Carnegie.

JAMSTEC research scientist Keisuke Ariyoshi organized the meeting and brought along Yuki Inoue, a JAMSTEC representative working at NOAA's Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research. JST Deputy Director Naoko Yasuo and JSPS Deputy Director Takahiro Fujino also were part of the group.

DTM Director Rick Carlson guided the group on a tour of the campus facilities, featuring DTM's work on seismometer technology and mass spectrometry. Librarian Shaun Hardy also gave a brief presentation on Carnegie's rich history and research.

After concluding their campus tour, visitors presented brief highlights on JAMSTEC's research, development, and operations. Their presentations also included overviews of JST and international fellowship opportunities in Japan through JSPS.

A reception with Carnegie scientists concluded the group's visit.
