Marine Environmental Simulation Study for Future Projection of Marine Ecosystems
Research Scientist,Ecosystem Change Research Program,
We will simulate marine environments to project impacts of global warming and ocean acidification on marine ecosystems and fishery resources. It is predicted that the carbon dioxide emissions associated with human activities will increase the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide, causing global warming. The ocean absorbs this carbon dioxide, which affects marine biota through ocean acidification. We will develop simulation techniques by integrating models developed in various fundamental fields of ocean science.
