New members joined our laboratory!

Dr. Nishisue and 3rd year students, namely Ms. Sumika Akahane, Mr. Taichi Iwama, and Mr. Kou Ogawa have joined our lab.

Welcome to our lab!!!

Welcome to our lab!!!

Presentation at ISE2022 (online)

Our lab members presented their research outcomes in the International Symposium on Ecohydraulics 2022 (online). It was a great opportunity to know researches in progress in other countries.

Congratulations on the graduation in FY2021!!!

Three master course students (Asano, Kasahara and Tanaka) and three bachelor course students (Ishikawa, Fujii and Kawasaki) have graduated successfully even under the tough period due to COVID-19. Wishing all the best for their bright future!!!

Presentation in PAWEES2021 (online)

Mr. Asano successfully presented his work entitled “A 1D hydrodynamic model for sediment transport analysis around the Ba Lai sluice gate in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam” in PAWEES2021.  Great work!!!

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!!!

Graduation ceremony on Mach 25, 2021

Three undergraduate students and two master course students have graduated from our laboratory. I always feel a bit sad on graduation day every year, but it’s the beginning of their new career. Wishing all the best for their bright future!!!

Five University Joint Seminar

We had a joint seminar with other nearby universities working on water and irrigation sciences. It was a great opportunity for us to communicate with other students and professors. There were impressive presentations reporting current problems in rural environment. Thank you very much for the organizer!
