Our Target / 研究室の概要

We are an active research group, initiated in 2009, focusing water-related issues. Our major research targets are
1) to enhance scientific understanding of aquatic ecosystems and water environments,
2) to develop the updated understanding to solid concepts and tools for environmental assessment and management, and
3) to work with societies for water environment conservation and management.

To this end, we are working in an open, active and supportive team. Thus, we are grateful for any scientific exchange and any contact to apply for the team member.
