Research Organization

[Upadated on July 14, 2016]

We broadly have four parts in this research area (A01-04) and will deepen each study and offer feedback to each other through collaboration.
We will launch a cross-sectional team, which consists of related but different study fields with geoenvironmental researchers as a core, to understand current contamination status and to construct a model for transfer and diffusion processes of radionuclides. Scientific insights and foundation for modeling which require long-term measures will be established through various interdisciplinary studies.
With this interdisciplinary study on environmental transfer of radionuclides from the Fukushima Daiichi NPP Accident, we aim at strengthening academic levels of geoenvironmental sciences of our country, which in turn will make a positive contribution to the society.
