2nd U.S.-Japan Seminar on “High-Pressure Research: Applications in Geophysics”



The second U.S.-Japan seminar on ‘High-Pressure Research: Applications in Geophysics’ was held in Hakone, Japan, January 12–15, 1981, under the auspices of the U.S.-Japan Cooperative Science Program between the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) and the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF). The coconvenors were Syun-iti Akimoto (Japan) and Murli H. Manghnani (USA). The first such seminar was held in Honolulu, Hawaii, in 1976. Like the Hawaii seminar, the Hakone seminar was a tremendous success.
