Japanese NGO to Promote Solar Cookers in Kenya — Last modified October 12, 2011 10:00
Members of several Japanese environmental non-governmental organizations (NGOs) joined together to establish an organization called "Solar Cooker Japan (SCJ)" in February, 2007. The group aims to promote solar cooking in Africa with a new solar cooker prototype - an inflatable solar cooker invented by a Japanese industrial designer, Tomohiro Ohmura. SCJ started promoting the cooker in Kenya, demonstrating it at various places and to Kenyan governmental officials. The organization is also performing verification tests in cooperation with a local NGO.
Kyoto University Discovers New Mechanism of Photosynthesis in Oceans — Last modified September 03, 2007 11:54
A research group at the Hall of Global Environmental Research and Graduate School of Human and Environmental Studies of Kyoto University announced on April 10, 2007, that it had discovered a new mechanism of photosynthesis that utilizes near-infrared light for water oxidation. This finding is expected to offer a new perspective on primary productivity and the carbon cycle on Earth.

Historical dataset of wind-driven global ocean circulation available — Last modified March 12, 2007 22:04
We have provided a historical dataset of the wind-driven global ocean circulation for climate research. The data is obtained by applying a wind-driven model of the ocean circulation, the so-called “Island Rule” model to monthly surface wind stress fields from the US National Centre for Environmental Prediction and the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting to generate the wind-driven circulation history in terms of barotropic stream function and steric height for the last 50 years.
Environmental Load Slide Rule Quickly Measures Burdens on Environment — Last modified February 13, 2007 16:23
In October 2006, Iwate Prefecture put on public display an original slide rule designed to measure the environmental loads caused by various daily activities - the "Environmental Load Slide Rule." Environmental load levels are calculated in terms of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Instructions for how to make an Environmental Load Slide Rule were also included in the exhibit, in the hopes that the device will be used for environmental education.

The Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation (CALIPSO) satellite mission is pleased to announce an initial release of its data products. CALIPSO provides new insight into the role that clouds and atmospheric aerosols (airborne particles) play in regulating Earth's weather, climate, and air quality. CALIPSO is a joint mission between NASA and CNES, the French space agency.
Ministry Releases Technology Strategy Map for CO2 Fixation — Last modified September 27, 2006 15:23
Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry released the Technology Map for Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fixation and its Effective Application Areas on April 28, 2006, in order to promote the development of CO2 fixation technology. This map is part of the Technology Strategy Map for 2006, which aims to introduce key technologies to create new industries and measures for expanding the demand for goods and services.
