About Us



Coasts, the interface between the land where we live and sea, are buffers reducing damage by waves on our society and are also important habitats for a wide variety of organisms. However, due to our social activities and changes in the natural environment caused by climate change, coasts around the world are losing their original shape.

Our research goal is to realize coasts that provide both a rich natural environment and the disaster-prevention functions. We are developing coastal monitoring methods using latest observation devices and are aiming to understand the complicated nearshore process. In addition, we are also working on numerical simulations of waves and currents using numerical models to elucidate various phenomena on the coasts that are difficult to observe by field observation alone.
