New publication!!!

Thanks to Ana and other colleagues in Estonia and Spain, our joint paper has been accepted in Ecological Informatics.  Advanced sensing methods can contribute to a deeper understanding of species’ ecology and their response to environmental conditions such as hydrodynamics in rivers and streams. We will continue this collaboration (and be more active) specifically in the field of ecohydraulics.

MSc defence by Mr. Grant Thompson

Grant successfully presented his research achievement as his MSc thesis entitled “Barrier-Driven Morphological Differentiation of Rhinogobius nagoyae in Kanagawa and Chiba Prefectures, Japan”. It should have been difficult for him to complete his research due to COVID-19. Although it is not directly related to his thesis, it was great that he joined our team and surveys in Vietnam and Ishigaki Island!!!

[ISE2018] Website open!!!


One of my main international conference, 12th International Conference on Ecohydraulics will be held in Tokyo (August 19-24, 2018).  This symposium is a joint symposium convened by the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR) and International Society for River Science (ISRS).  As a local organizing committee member, we are making our best effort to make this conference attractive and fruitful. 

Irrigation has started!!!

Irrigation has started in Fuchu Yosui on May 18.  This water may bring many fish and other organisms, hopefully except invasive, alien species.
