Profile

I was born in Aichi, Japan. In 2004, I graduated in Faculty of Science, Kyoto University, Japan (Prof. Nobuaki Washida). In 2009, I graduated in Department of Earth and Planetary Science, The University of Tokyo, Japan (Prof. Terry Nakajima). After getting my Ph.D, I become a post doctorial researcher in Center for Climate System Research (CCSR; now Atmospheric and Ocean Research Institute), The University of Tokyo, Japan (Prof. Terry Nakajima). From 2012 to 2016, I am a researcher in Center for Regional Environmental Research, National Institute for Environmental Studies, Japan.  From 2016, I am a senior researcher in the same center and institute.

Researcher Information

Modeling of NICAM-Chem


We have developed and improved NICAM-Chem model (e.g., Goto et al., Geosci. Model Dev., 2015). The NICAM-Chem can simulate distributions of air pollutants. A stretching grid in NICAM can be available for regional simulations. Some of results are shown in NICAM-Chem page.

Model intercomparison for air pollutants


A model intercomparison with measurements can help us to deeply understand model performance. Some of results are published in Goto et al. (J. Geophys. Res. Atmos., 2015).
