Outline of Research

The Late Cainozoic geological history and geo-structural development of the Hokuriku district, central Japan, and the oceanographic history and sedimentological development of the Sea of Japan over the last 20,000 years are my major research topics in Japan. On the other hand, geo-environmental history and mechanisms sustaining the biodiversity of Lake Tonle Sap of central Cambodia, the evaluation of environmental pollution and destruction of the Angkor World Heritage site in Cambodia, and sedimentation in and around mangrove habitats in Southeast Asia are my major research activities in the overseas countries.
