**Objectives [#j1efe52e]
In the Hydrosphere Science Project (HSP), we provide opportunities for students to practice hydrosphere-related research in a short period of time. Specifically, students will acquire, organize, and analyze various data on the hydrosphere environment across multiple academic fields that make up the Hydrosphere Environmental Group, make presentations during the course, and compile a report. Through this series of experiences, we aim that students will acquire the practical skills necessary for subsequent Master's (Doctor’s) research. Regarding research conducted in this course, we strongly recommend that students widely disseminate results to the public, such as presenting in academic conference or writing a paper for scientific journals after taking classes with advisor’s support.
**How it works [#w283c69c]
- On the first lecture (April 5th), the topics that students should take are presented. These topics are proposed by the teachers/staffs of the Hydrosphere Environmental Group. Though the theme setting itself is an important process of research, that process will be skipped in HSP. During the first week (April 5th to 12th), students fill the form with your preferred topics (up to 3 topics with priority order). On April 12th, the first topic assignment will be announced. During the second week (April 12th to 19th), those students who haven’t been decided will fill the form in the same manner as the first round (up to 3 topics with priority order) but from the remained topics. The final topic assignment will fixed on April 19th. Please do not choose the topic provided by the supervisor of student’s graduation research from the reason that we would like students to have a wide range of interest.
- In HSP, there are only three occasions that all of students and advisors gather; first guidance, mid-term presentation, and final presentation. During the course, students will proceed his/her research through individual meetings with an advisor who has offered the selected topic. Sometimes we will hold seminars on common skills (programming, analysis and visualization techniques using specific software, etc.), but attendance is not essential (it does not even apply to grades).
- On May 10th, we will hold mid-term presentation. In the mid-term presentation, please present about the background, importance, etc. of the selected topic and the subsequent research plan in about 10 minutes for each student, along with the reason for choosing the topic. Students may include the initial results that he/she has done so far, but it is not mandatory.
- On July 12th, we will hold a final presentation. In the final presentation, students will give oral or poster presentation depending on number of participants. In either case, please describe the background of the topic, show the results of the analysis etc. done by him/herself, and state the conclusion based on the analysis. A few “best presentations” will be awarded in the honorably celebration afterwards.  
- Finally, please submit a report that summarizes a series of research work to Yoshimura and his/her advisor by 23:59 on July 31. We do not specify its amount, but a concise report is preferred than lengthy one.
- Mid-term presentation, final presentation, and report will be in English. The language used for discussion with advisors is free.
