Brief Description of Research
 Environmental resources in Asia are being depleted and degraded, and are deteriorating rapidly because of various human activities, and it is therefore important to assess and predict ecosystem functions quantitatively and make scientifically-sound policy recommendations for sustainable development. Accordingly, it can be a very powerful tool to develop and apply an integrated water-material-energy cycle model with an interface between environmental-resource database composed of ecosystems in air, forest, farm, urban, river, lake, groundwater, and sea areas. With a focus on East Asian catchments of various scales, I have been developing methods for assessing and predicting the changes in ecosystem functions with the changes in water, thermal, and material cycles by integrating ground-based observation, GIS data, satellite data, and distributed process models (NICE: National Integrated Catchment-based Eco-hydrology model).
 In the future, I am going to develop vegetation growth and urban models, and clarify the water, thermal, and material cycles in catchment ecosystems by integrating the terrestrial, atmospheric, and oceanic models with upscaling and downscaling procedures (including integration with turbulence models). In Asia, the impact of urban regions on the water, thermal, and material cycles in catchments has been increasing on an annual basis, and it is necessary to aim for economic development in accordance with nature. I will also work on assessment and predictions using a model simulation with technological and political inventories and scenarios.
 Please read the following articles for more details of the initial stage of the process-based NICE model development.

 Recently, the author developed an advanced model coupling eco-hydrology and biogeochemical cycle (NICE-BGC). This new model incorporates complex coupling of hydrologic-carbon cycle in terrestrial-aquatic linkages and interplay between inorganic and organic carbon during the whole process of carbon cycling. The model result shows carbon flux budgets in major rivers, both horizontal transports and vertical fluxes. The result also implies difference between inverse techniques and budget estimates can be explained to some extent by net source from inland water;
