About this Book

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 67.

The U.S.-Japan seminar in high-pressure research related to earth sciences was conceived by Professors S. Akimoto (Japan) and M. H. Manghnani (U.S.) to provide opportunities for interchangech of ideas and discussion on the research carried out in both countries. The seminars, held every five years since the first seminar in Hawaii in 1976, have played a significant role in promoting communications amongst high pressure research communities in Japan and the U.S. as well as other countries. During these 15 years, high-pressure research in mineral physics has acquired increased recognition among geophysicists as a subject that is vital to the understanding of the formation and evolution of the Earth. Progress in high pressure research has enabled us to achieve experimentally the pressures and temperatures of the interior Earth and other planetary interiors.
