The following paper, published in Journal of JSCE B2 (Coastal Engineering), received Coastal Engineering Paper Award from the JSCE Coastal Engineering Committee. This research focused on a blue carbon function of Tokyo Bay, one of the world's representative urban bays. This paper reported on the continuous observation of partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO2) in the surface seawater in a harbor using an inexpensive and practical handmade sensor system. Congratulations to Masanori Endo, Project Academic Specialist, and SUN Jing, 2nd-year master's student.

Wataru Nakamura, a second-year PhD student, received the Outstanding Student Presentation Award in the Atmospheric and Hydrospheric Sciences Section at the 2022 Congress of the Japan Geoscience Union (JpGU Meeting 2022). More than 550 students entered the competition; about 5-10 % of the entries in each section received this award in the 2022 Congress. The title of the presentation was "Tidal-driven high CO2 evasion from mangrove swamp to the air and adjoining waters over spring-neap tidal cycles in the estuary of Fukido River, Ishigaki Island". Congratulations!
Typhoon-1919 is approaching Kanto and Tokai Regions, Japan, on October 12, 2019. Real time tide observation data (storm surge anomalies) can be seen in Web of Japan Meteorological Agency (in Japanese).
