Division of Fisheries Environmental Oceanography: Department of Living Marine Resources, Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute, The University of Tokyo

  • Ocean Environments closely relating to climate variability and change
  • Living marine resources dynamically changing
  • Elucidate the dynamics of ocean variability on environments and living resources using high technical observation and modelling

About FEO Division

Facing to the global change, it is urgent task for human beings to elucidate the mechanism of ocean variability impacts on marine ecosystems and evaluate the effect of future climate change on living marine resources. Our group studies the dynamics of physical oceanographic processes and their impacts on marine ecosystem and fisheries resources via physical-biological interactions by promoting both field observations and numerical simulations. We are conducting high technical observations using underwater gliders and GPS wave buoys and investigating sardine larval environments using stable isotope. Relationship between ocean environments and occurrence of paralytic shellfish poisoning is studied with real-time buoy monitoring of Otsuchi Bay. To elucidate the key factors to control fluctuations of living marine resources and evaluate climate change effects on them, data assimilated marine ecosystem models and fish growth - migration models have been developed.
