Current state of research and teaching activities

Coastal Engineering, Impacts assessments and adaptations of the global warming and sea-level rise
Coastal engineering and hydraulics are major subjects that I offer in undergraduate and graduate courses in Department of Urban and Civil Engineering. As for research topics, countermeasures against coastal erosion and adaptations to the global warming and sea-level rise are the main topics.

Research Areas

  1. Coastal and Environmental Engineering
  2. Hydraulic Engineering
  3. Modeling and technologies for environmental conservation and remediation

Subject of research

  1. Method for Estimating Directional Spectrum of ocean waves 1990-Present
  2. Coastal morphological changes in Ibaraki coast (Oarai, Ajigaura, Kashimanada) 1997-Present
  3. Impact assessment and Adaptation measures to Global Climate Change 1998-Present
  4. Beachtopographic changes on coral reef coast 2002-Present
  5. Numerical Model for Wavetransmission into harbor due to overtopping
  6. Statistical analysis for beach topographical changes

Proposed theme of joint or funded research

  1. Coastal erosion issures; mechanisms, processes and countermeasures Wish to undertake joint research with industry and other organizations including private sector. Technical consultation,Commisioned research,Joint research
