[Professor Shirayama's Photo.jpg]<http://www.questacon.edu.au/events/toward-better-understanding-ocean-and-earth>Date: Friday 22 November (that’s TODAY folks!)
Time: 4pm – 6:30pm
Location: Japan Theatre, Questacon, King Edward Terrace, Parkes ACT 2600

Dr Yoshihisa Shirayama, Executive Director of the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC).

This guest lecture is hosted by the Embassy of Japan, Canberra and examines findings from a recent series of surveys conducted by JAMSTEC. These surveys were initiated in response to the 2011 Tōhoku Earthquake off Japan’s eastern coastline and investigated the earthquake’s influences on marine ecosystems. These surveys form the basis of a 10-year project monitoring marine ecosystems in the Tōhoku region. Dr Shirayama is one of Japan’s leading marine science researchers and is a highly-specialised marine biologist, especially in taxonomy and the ecology of deep-sea meiobenthos—small invertebrates that live on, in, or near the seabed, also known as the benthic zone.

A cocktail function will follow this lecture in the Questacon Foyer courtesy of the Embassy of Japan in Australia. Light food and refreshment will be available during this function and all are welcome to attend.
