Understanding the Impact of Climate Change
Hokkaido University originates from Sapporo Agricultural College which was established in 1876 on the northernmost island of Japan. At the time of its establishment, the University’s mission was to develop cold-weather agriculture technologies for the development of Hokkaido and to foster human resources to put these technologies into practice. Thus, from the beginning, we have conducted educational and research activities rooted in the great nature of Hokkaido. With its strength in field research, the University’s researchers in various fields are currently conducting research on climate change from diverse angles, including forests, glaciers and ice sheets, the atmosphere, oceans, and society. In this special feature, “Understanding the Impact of Climate Change,” we introduce our researchers’ discoveries and their ongoing scientific endeavours.
