ここは神戸大学 工学部市民工学科・海岸海洋研究グループのwebサイトです.我々は海岸工学および沿岸海洋物理学の研究を行っています.


Welcome to our group web site. We are CORG -- Coastal and Oceanic Research Group -- in Dept. Civil Engineering, Kobe University. The current on-going projects include:

  1. mesoscale/submesoscale coastal and oceanic dynamics,
  2. wave-current interaction with a vortex-force formalism,
  3. realization of the dynamics of Kuroshio and its branches,
  4. estuarine circulations,
  5. oceanic material dispersion (sewage, radioactive tracers, larvae,..),
  6. nearshore littoral processes and sediment transport,

exploiting a state-of-the-art regional oceanic circulation model (ROMS) along with satellite and in-situ measurements in collaboration with colleagues at UCLA (USA), JAMSTEC, OIST, CRIEPI, Kyoto Univ./DPRI, Tokyo Univ. Marine Sci. & Tech., JAEA, Scripps Inst. Oceanography (USA), UCSB (USA), IRD-LEGOS (France), Hokkaido Univ., Univ. of Tokyo, Ibaraki Univ., Kobe Gakuin Univ., Ehime Univ. CMES, Ritsumeikan Univ., NASA-JPL (USA), Clarkson Univ./Beacon Inst. (USA), etc. The study areas are the western Pacific marginal seas near Japan (Kuroshio Extension, NE Pacific coast, Okinawan Islands, Sea of Japan), U.S. West Coast (WA/OR/CA, USA), Seto Inland Sea (Japan), Southern California Bight (CA, USA), Hudson River estuary (NY/NJ, USA), Duck (NC, USA), and more. Our goal is to deepen scientific and engineering understanding of the coastal and oceanic system.

We are seeking for enthusiastic international and domestic students and scientists (e.g., JSPS postdoctral fellows, scholars on sabbatical, ...) working jointly with us. Successful students should be at Kobe University with a strong background of coastal engineering, (geophysical) fluid mechanics, physical oceanography, or related subjects.
