For the coming expedition to Nishinoshima Island in September 2019, the team is getting ready for an on-land investigation.
In order to avoid bringing living creature on the island, it is mandatory for researchers and all their belongings to dip themselves in the ocean before landing. For this reason, marine safety training was held in Utokyo swimming pool.
In the picture, three researchers from ERI are practicing how to wear wet suite in water.
