Research Fields

Tectonic Geomorphology and Geographic Information Science

Research Keywords

  • Active Fault
  • Geomorphology
  • Geographical Information System
  • Digital Elevation Model
  • Median Tectonic Line

Research Outline

I study the geomorphic development, especially geomorphic features related to the earthquake. I examine the geomorphic features using the conventional method for the interpretation of aerial photography and field survey as well as the analysis of digital elevation model on geographic information systems (GIS).
