We have been attempting a number of researches on aquatic environmental problems in natural water area, such as sea (coastal area, estuary, coast, tidal flat), river (watershed area, upper reach to river mouth), and lake in order to aim finding the solution by approaches from a perspective of fluid mechanics. In addition, we work positively to promote interdisciplinary studies with a wide range of research areas, such as biology, ecological engineering, analytical chemistry, etc. Recently, we have started to try new research topics on the adaptation to natural disasters due to climate change and the development of sustainable social systems with due considerations to biodiversity. These studies are conducted using on-site surveys, numerical simulations using computers, and experiments using models.
