Aim of the symposium

River Basin Research Center (RBRC) of Gifu University is promoting an interdisciplinary “river basin science” to facilitate sustainable use of natural resources involved in the landscape which is composed of natural and societal systems and their interactions. The river basin science integrates research and developments for our deeper understandings on the systems including mountainous forested catchment, rivers and regional climate, and for sound management of natural resources such as water and agricultural products. As the impacts of climate change and human activity on such basin systems are rapidly changing, the environmental science is requested to help solve the issues in our ‘natural – societal ecosystems’. This symposium aims to share the scientific findings and knowledge, exchange germinating ideas, and to explore new vision of environmental science which bridges natural and societal systems for their harmonized sustainability.
