This division studies the influence of harmful chemical substances on marine organisms and the dynamics of these substances in the marine environment in the Circum-Sea of Japan area; particularly in coastal areas. This examination of marine biota is performed through the use of biochemical assays and chemical oceanography. The research performed aids in the development of marine environment evaluation systems and for this purpose involves international collaborations.
