andslide Research Team  - dealing with  landslide disasters over Japan -

The dynamic tectonics and monsoonal climate of Japan results in steep landscapes, intense rainfall, and heavy snowfall, causing frequent debris flows, landslides, and hill slope collapses every year. Among them, landslides are triggered by both natural and man-induced causes, and the locations reflect geology and topography of the area. The Landslide Research Team conducts research on the mechanisms of landslides, developing monitoring techniques and improving countermeasures to prevent disasters. The social impact of landslide disasters is also an area of research interest.
