Unit for Research and Application Solution of Water-Related Disaster Science and Information



In order to reduce frequent and devastating water related disaster damage, it is necessary to offer unified solutions for widely diversified problems including the development of observation techniques such as weather radar, the development of prediction techniques of water related disaster using observation data, the development of evacuation guide and evacuation information dissemination system based on prediction results and methods of resident evacuation. In this study, we cope with the development of runoff analysis technology using weather radar for overseas expansion, the development of early impact prediction system for localized torrential rain in the urban area, examinations on observation, prediction, dissemination and application technology of water related disaster information and feasibility study of water related disaster and information solutions both in Japan and overseas.
