The research aim in our laboratory is to quantitatively understand the various geo-scientific phenomena linked withﾂꀀ sediment disasters, such as the effect of slope environment on substance transport and mass movement. We also focus on the fundamental scientific aspects which are useful for mitigating sediment disasters. In addition, by adopting the knowledge in related research fields, the following research topics areﾂꀀ intensively advanced in our laboratory:
1) Relationship between the land use and water-sediment movement.
2) Landslide mechanisms triggered by thaw water.
3) Prediction of the landslide timing based on the combination of slope hydrology, soil engineering, and electro-magneticﾂꀀ aspects.
4) Organic and inorganic interaction in slope-stream systems.
