1. River Basin Environmental Science Major subjects

International Partnership for Environment
KAZAMA Futaba, NISHIDA Kei and ISHIDAIRA Hiroshi
1st Semester

Environmental issues in river basin (historical accidents, countermeasures and technologies) are introduced. Experiences of international cooperation are also given by experts and researchers to think how they should be. This lecture thereby aims to transport knowledge on environmental science to younger generations and develop their ability for practical solution. Japanese and oversea students study together through group work on some topics. English is potentially used.

Advanced Water Quality Assessment
SAKAMOTO Yasushi, KAZAMA Futaba, NISHIDA Kei and HARAMOTO Eiji
2nd Semester

Environmental issues and the applied methodologies are outlined specifically on terrestrial environments such as groundwater, river or lake. Natural and human-induced water contents, estimations of pollutant load and health risk/guideline, modeling water quality incorporated with infiltration/flow/runoff processes are discussed. English is potentially used.

Advanced Hydrology and Water Resources
SAKAMOTO Yasushi, MASUTANI Keiichi and ISHIDAIRA Hiroshi
1st Semester

The aim of the lecture is to learn mechanism and modeling of water flows. The lecture starts from describing basic equations of fluid motion, followed by 1-dimensional water flow equations and storage type water dynamics modeling. The lecture deals with not only theoretical description of water flow modeling but also its numerical solution technique. The topics treated in the lecture are crucial for understanding water flows and river basin environmental science. The lecture is mainly given in Japanese while English is also used when needed.

Advanced Environmental Treatment Technology
KAZAMA Futaba, MORI Kazuhiro and TOYAMA Tadashi
2nd Semester

The purpose of this lecture is to learn the purification/remediation technologies for polluted soil and water. They include physicochemical technology, biological technology and ecological technology for removal of organic compounds, nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus), heavy metals and persistent organic pollutants. In this lecture, we will learn the technologies for energy/material recovery from solid waste/wastewater.

Advanced River Basin Management
SAKAMOTO Yasushi, MUTO Shinichi and ICHIKAWA Yutaka
2nd Semester

統合力を養成する科目である。 地域の水問題を解決・軽減するための流域管理の方法と、関連する行政の対応や地域計画について学ぶ。 河道と流域それぞれにおける洪水・土砂管理の方法、水災害リスク情報の提供による防減災の手法、環境アセスメントや費用便益分析を地域の水環境や水資源の管理計画と連動させる方法について、具体的な事例をもとに演習を交えて理解する。 多国籍の受講者を対象とするため、英語の使用を前提とする。

Advanced Environmental Data Analysis
NISHIDA Kei and HARAMOTO Eiji
1st Semester

Basics of environmental measurements are learned to understand what the obtained information means. Basics of data processing are also learned by using monitoring results from a model basin. Japanese and oversea students study together through group work. English is potentially used.

Advanced Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System
MASUTANI Keiichi, ISHIDAIRA Hiroshi and MAGOME Jun
2nd Semester

This course provides basic theories and techniques to analyze environmental information, including remote sensing, GIS. Japanese and oversea students study together through work group on some topics. English is potentially used.
