Division of Integrated Environmental Studies

In order to understand the migration behavior of chemical substances in the Earth’s surface environment, it is necessary to study the transport processes within terrestrial, atmospheric and marine environments, as well as their boundary zones. For this purpose, this division uses environmental tracers, involving each of the department’s research divisions. Through the use of environmental tracers and model simulations, this division carries out the integrated analysis of substance dynamics in the Circum-Sea of Japan area in order to better predict future circumstances.
