Research Interests

Our group is focusing on the Surface Ocean-Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS) that is the investigation of the dynamic processes occurring across the sea surface. The goal is "to achieve quantitative understanding of the key biogeochemical-physical interactions and feedbacks between the ocean and atmosphere, and how this coupled system affects and is affected by climate and environmental change"
・ Observation of emissions of marine biogenic gases and gas-to-particle conversion over the regions of the high primary productivity in the North Pacific.
・ Observation of the effect to marine biological activity and carbon uptake caused by atmospheric depositions of mineral dust (iron) and anthropogenic nitrogen compounds transported from the Asian continent.
・ Observation of carbon uptake by nitrogen fixation marine biota in the Kuroshio and the sub-tropical region.
・ Effects of volcanic gases and aerosols from the Japanese active volcanoes to atmospheric and oceanic environment.
