We created a laboratory logo


​We have created a logo for the Arikawa Laboratory.

The design was created mainly by current laboratory members.

Yacht training using research subjects such as waves, soil, structures, and vegetation as motifs.We also incorporated a yacht as an accent unique to Arikawa Lab.

By configuring these motifs as a whole in a circle, research will help create a rich and safe coastal area.It expresses the aspirations and unity of the coastal city for the future.

A new research article has been published online in Coastal Engineering Journal.


The authors conducted sensitivity analyses to physics options in Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model for typhoon forecasting and a conprehensive review of previous studies.

The work also evaluated how uncertainty of typhoon forecasts propagates to storm surge forecasts.
