- Institute of Environmental Radioactivity Radioisotope Geoscience Division, Terrestrial Radionuclide Dynamics
I received my Ph.D in Science from University of Tsukuba for research on soil erosion on unmanaged forest. Currently, my research focuses on the radiocesium wash-off associated with sediment dynamics.
Main Focus of Research
- Cs-137 wash-off from slope
- Cs-137 wash-off from river basin
- Cs-137 behavior in closed water system
Fields of Research
Sediment dynamics, Cs-137
I learned a part of sediment dynamics through researches on soil erosion processes in unmanaged Japanese cypress plantations during my doctoral course. After the doctorate, I experienced hydrological researches, such as snowmelt runoff observation and measurements of stable isotopes of water in a project focusing on environmental change on mountainous area. Since 2013, I have studied Cs-137 wash-off associated with sediment dynamics in Fukushima.
A few words
Interdisciplinary approaches are required for understanding Cs-137 dynamics in terrestrial environment. I will open my mind to adsorb knowledge in various academic disciplines and to address the challenge.
