Hydrological Environments

The hydrological cycles and material transports including the effects of human impacts in the earth surface, an important aspect of environmental science and human life, has not yet been fully depicted. New recent observations performed in regional scales have revealed changes in the earth surface systems that should be investigated by a multidisciplinary approach in multiple spatiotemporal scales. Our research group investigates these issues on near-surface environments including atmosphere, watershed, aquifers, and costal environments, using various physicochemical parameters, isotopes and simulation tools. Our main field is Kyushu; however, target area is generally broad extending to Asian region and more globally. Effects of natural deserters on earth systems including floods, earthquakes and volcanism are also major concerns of this research unit.
