Executive Director Romain Troublé of the Tara Expeditions Foundation in France made a courtesy visit to President Kyosuke Nagata of the University of Tsukuba on December 5.
The Tara Expeditions Foundation is engaged in a world-famous ocean exploration project with Tara, the French research schooner. Tara left its home port in Lorient in France in May 2016, planning to sail across the Pacific Ocean for over two years.
The Shimoda Marine Research Center, University of Tsukuba, has played a coordinating role for Tara to conduct oceanographic activities, including investigation of coral reefs in the sea close to Japan.
