| Our mission
A sustainable relationship with an inland
water system is indispensable to the development
of our society in this century. It would
be especially hard to establish how to conserve
and restore an ecological system in a river,
because it involves the interdisciplinary
fields of ecology and civil engineering.
The ARRC was established to conduct various
research regarding inland water environment
in order to conserve and restore "biological
diversity" in streams, rivers, lakes
and marshes, etc.
Research has been carried out from fundamental
to applicable fields and the results are
expected to be used widely for saving aquatic
The interaction between "morphology,"
and "humankind" regarding inland
water is emphasized through all the research
subjects at the ARRC. This interaction will
facilitate us to develop appropriate management
policies for inland water systems.
