The instructor lectures on the importance and regulations of safety management in the university with special reference to the department class. Lectures on data analysis provide several useful statistical methods for Earth and Planetary Sciences.
Every student learns safety management necessary for studying at the university. Students learn fundamental knowledge and applications of the statistical treatment of scientific data in data analysis.
Safety management, Waste material, Data analysis, Statistical treatment

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
No specific textbook.
Materials necessary for the class will be given.
The score is determined from several reports on subjects related to the lecture.
This lecture is for undergraduate students in Department of the Earth and Planetary Sciences.
