Message from professors
Professor Koji Ikeuchi
We are promoting research and education such as disaster prevention and countermeasures against water-related disasters,
adaptation measures to climate change due to global warming etc., river management, crisis management utilizing ICT etc.,
river environment conservation and restoration. We will contribute toward implementing and increasing safety awareness
in the society. In addition, by effectively combining Earth observation data, numerical models, socioeconomic data,
developing science and technology to combine the information. It is possible to contribute the invention of knowledge
to solve global environmental problems and contribute to the international community. We have aim to induce public interests.

Project Professor Akiyuki Kawasaki
We conduct R & D to promote data integration in water circulation and water related fields, in order to organize and
systematized scientific knowledge, implement it in society, and create public interests. We also focus on supporting
developing countries through research and development.

Associate Professor Takeyoshi Chibana
Students and teachers work together to gain the necessary knowledge for students and visit as many river basins as possible,
processing the field measurement data, understand the phenomena found there, and propose solutions from standpoint of
river engineering and environmental research.

Project Lecturer Satoshi Watanabe
We have aim to develop information and technology that contributes to social decision making by utilizing diverse
future forecasts on natural environment changes such as climate change and population and socioeconomic change.
In addition, since research and education beyond conventional boundaries are important to be implemented,
we will challenge the practice of super interdisciplinary research by academics and the public, which is
not limited to the promotion of basic science.
Assistant Professor Masashi Minamide
My research interests lie in exploring the predictability of weather system and deepening the understanding of their dynamics using the latest observational, modeling, mathematical, and statistical methodologies. During my doctoral study, I have conducted research through building a platform to assimilate all-sky infrared satellite radiances using an ensemble Kalman filter with convective-permitting models, developing new methodologies required for cloud-affected radiances assimilation, and investigating their impacts on the predictability of severe weather events such as tropical cyclones.
