and EROSION CONTROL
Ver. Winter ~ Spring Season 2019
In a fascinating account of how neglect the forest management and the erosion of woodlands toppled empires and wiped out entire civilization since ancient times, they say we should establish more desirable relationship between human beings and forests.
This division offers various programs designed to provide students with the basic knowledge of the forest science relating to Forest Engineering, Disaster Prevention & Erosion Control in woodlands, and Forest Environment in mountainous regions.
We have moved in the new campus (Ito campus) in October 2018.
Our new experiment annex and faculty building in the new campus.
Notices: * The MOU i.e. mutual research cooperation between GRADUATE SCHOOL OF BIORESOURCE AND BIOENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES,
SCHOOL OF AGRICULTURE, KYUSHU UNIVERSITY, AND INSTITUTE OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, TRIBHUVAN UNIVERSITY, NEPAL
was just completed on March 27, 2015. We sincerely hope the quick recovery from this April’s earthquakes!
* Also MOU with FORDA (Forest Research and Development Agency, the ministry of forestry, Indonesia) and The Faculty of Agriculture at Kyushu University was completed on August 26, 2013, at Jakarta, Indonesia. On that week, FORDA was celebrated its 100th anniversary. Dr. Hasnawir who is former student in our laboratory was also nominated for the most excellent researcher by the minister.
To mitigate sediment disaster, it is important to forecast the occurrence of landslides, and fix the hazard map in mountainous watershed. As the basic research, geomorphological process and interaction between soil and vegetation on slope system are studied in our laboratory. Also some new countermeasures for slope stability and erosion control are designed with revegetation works.
