Different important geoscientific phenomena caused by the dynamic processes are occurring frequently and actively at the plate convergence areas on the Earth. HiPeR (Hiroshima Institute of Plate Convergence Region Research) aims to have comprehensive understanding on these important phenomena, dividing them into three major processes of strategic research. These include “deep circulation of rocks and water”, “process and mechanism of fault movements” and “processes of magma generation”. We are aiming to carry out three-pronged research activities including “experiments”, “instrument-based observations” and “fieldwork-based observations”, which would help us to achieve the unified goal of better understanding of plate convergence area materials and events.
