About Our Research

International society is seeking stronger cooperation with "the physical science basis" of Working Group I (WGI) and "Impacts, adaptation and vulnerability" of Working Group II (WGII) within the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). In Japan, the development of global warming adaptation measures for all the local government units and various types of information on warming projections for use in those measures are being sought.

Among warming projections the change in the probability of extreme weather, for example typhoons and heavy rainfall during the rainy season, has recently drawn a lot of attention. High-resolution and precise global and regional climate models will be used in this theme and with the aim of elucidating how and why extreme weather changes that can have such a major impact on regional climates occur. The data from warming projection caluclations can then be used it examine the types of impact they will have on society. Data that meets all of the types of demand for it therefore needs to be output.

In area theme C, we intend to carry out future projections and experiments for use in reproducing current climates in various scenarios and experiments that reproduce past climates through assimilating data. Then, by assessing the adequacy of the resulting data, we can provide the various users of it with guidelines for them to use in making the decision on which data they can best use. In addition, we intend to develop a new and high-resolution downscaling model system to ensure that the data can then be utilized in a greater variety of fields, in warming impact assessment of environmental contamination, and in agriculture and renewable energy etc. The studies will be used in collaborative research that includes exchange of human resources in global warming vulnerable countries, such as Southeast Asian countries, as well as in Japan. In this way, our research contributes to climate change research projection and application studies.
