We are conducting atmospheric-hydrologic studies combining several research methods such as data analysis, field observation, laboratory experiments, and numerical simulations. Our main targets and focusing regions are; changes in atmospheric-terrestrial water cycles under current global warming in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions; changes in precipitation activities in Asia; and detection of anthropogenic effects on the Antarctic climate.
Our research fields are all over the world, from the tropics to the polar regions (Arctic and Antarctic regions).
In particular, we are trying to elucidate how climate change affect for changes in vegetation activities and/or land surface conditions, and consequently, how the water and carbon cycles respond to such changes.
We welcome you who interested in multi-scale (regional- and global-scale) water and carbon cycles.
