タイトル:Human Impacts on Landforms in Japan and the Resultant Increase in Disaster Risks
Prof. Takashi Oguchi is a distinguished researcher specializing in the fields of geomorphology and geographic information science (GIS). His extensive research encompasses a wide range of topics within geomorphology and physical geography, where he leverages cutting-edge digital technologies, including GIS and artificial intelligence (AI). With a notable and longstanding role as the editor-in-chief of the international journal Geomorphology, he has played a pivotal role in shaping the discourse in these fields. Beyond his scholarly contributions, he also actively promotes international exchange by delivering lectures and participating in activities within both national and international academic organizations, currently acting as the vice president of the International Association of Geomorphologists. His commitment to enhancing collaboration and knowledge-sharing transcends geographical boundaries. In this forthcoming presentation, Prof. Oguchi will introduce some examples of human impacts on landforms in Japan that increased disaster risks. The presentation aims to provide insights into the practical implications of geomorphology related to human activities and thinking, and addresses contemporary challenges in the realms of hazards and disaster mitigation.
