Reconstruction of the long-term response of ocean environments to various climate changes (e.g., ENSO: El Niño/Southern Oscillation, Asian monsoon, Glacial-Interglacial change) is an essential step for better understanding of climate system of the Earth. We have joined the IMAGES (International Marine Global Changes Study) program in order to investigate the high-resolutional study on the Pleistocene environmental change in the coastal and hemipelagic regions. Japanese communities have been conducting geochemical, geophysical and paleontological works on the IMAGES cores in the western Pacific from the equatorial region to the Okhotsk Sea.
