  • Research Interests

    My research interests focus on seismological observations related to fluid mechanics, which I call fluid seismology or seismological fluid mechanics. More than 70% of the Earth surface is underwater, and scientists use various instruments for seismological observations on the seafloor, such as ocean-bottom pressure gauges, ocean-bottom seismographs, etc. The observations often contain both seismological and fluid mechanical information. My goal is to understand the mechanical process and cause of the data, extract useful information, and develop novel research methods. Detailed research interests include: tsunamis and tsunami warning, ocean-bottom pressure and ocean-bottom seismograph noise.
