Associate Researcher Ryota MORIWAKI

Ph.D., A graduate of Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Tokyo Institute of Technology. Specialized in geochemistry.

I have studied on the early chemical evolutions of terrestrial planets, based on the trace element and radiogenic isotope systematic of Martian meteorites.

In Geo-Cosmo Inst., I conduct chemical and mineralogical analyses of the archaeological objects, such as ancient meteoritic iron daggers and iron-smelting products excavated from Anatolia, Turkey. The purpose of my current study is to understand how ancient people manufactured iron products from iron meteorites and terrestrial iron-rich ores.
