Murli H. Manghnani (Editor), Yasuhiko Syono (Editor)

ISBN: 978-1-118-66412-4 March 2013 American Geophysical Union 486 Pages


Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 39.

In recognition of the profound contributions made by Professor Syun-iti Akimoto in high pressure-high temperature research, which have enhanced our understanding of the earth's interior, and for his tireless efforts in furthering the U.S.-Japan cooperative research program, it is most fitting to dedicate this volume to him. This volume in honor of Professor Akimoto is a symbol of cooperation in international science that is exemplified by his contributions.
