More than 30 people, including both undergraduate and PLEP graduate students, attended the seminar and contributed to a lively learning environment.
In his lecture, Dr. Oikawa talked about the damage caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake and the subsequent tsunami. He also mentioned the response to them under extremely challenging conditions particularly after the occurrence of the radiation accident. Lastly he discussed the importance of acting based on sound scientific grounds especially when faced with difficult situations. It was a very useful seminar for all participants.
