Atmosphere-Hydrosphere Research Group

Mitigation of Atmospheric and Hydrospheric Disasters and the Conservation of the Aquatic Environment under Changing Global Environment Conditions

Water studies in this group include, impact assessment of global environmental changes on general circulation and water circulation, development of innovative methodologies for water resources management and water environment conservation in harmony with water utilization and social activities. Also studies of atmospheric environments causing disasters, elucidation of hazardous climate, quantitative prediction of disastrous meteorological phenomena and prevention of wind damage are carried out. Mitigation efforts are investigated with countermeasures for abnormal phenomena such as floods, storms, tidal waves and tsunamis, and planning of river basin environment management strategies considering sediment transportation processes ranging from soil erosion to estuary deposition.
