1. Modelling extreme sea levels due to sea level rise (SLR) and storm surge along the Bangladesh coast

Bangladesh is not one of the most vulnerable countries anymore but the most vulnerable country to SLR in the world! In this collaborative research project with IDEC, Hiroshima University (HU), we conducted the following sub-researches

  • 1) Extreme sea level prediction due to SLR and storm surge in the near future, 2050 and 2080. (Dr. Han Soo Lee) => Result
  • 2) Impacts assessment and adaptation measures in coastal infrastructure, including the transportation network in the coastal zone. (Prof. Zhang and Dr Lu)
  • 3) Flood mapping and impacts assessment and adaptation measures in agricultural sectors in Bangladesh. (Dr. Kawamura and Dr Tran)
  • 4) Economical assessment of the climate impacts in the coastal zone, Bangladesh (Prof. Kaneko)

2. Tide-Tsunami interaction in the Seto Inland Sea

Tides and tidal currents are significant factors in the coastal environment of the Seto Inland Sea. The tsunami hazards in the Seto Inland Sea are anticipated in the near future due to the potential Nankai Trough earthquakes. Therefore, it is important and has to be investigated how the tides and strong tidal currents in flood and ebb tides affect tsunami propagations in the Seto Inland Sea.
