The principal objective of our research is to intelligently utilize the ocean based on a good understanding of its physics. To further our understanding, we conduct field observations, laboratory experiments, and numerical simulations. Facilities available to us, to collect these results, including the Hiratsuka ocean observation tower, large experimental wave tanks, and supercomputers. Applications of our research results include ship navigation, feasibility studies of marine renewable energy and disaster prevention. Furthermore, our constructed ocean information such as wave and ocean current energy data are made freely available by our user-friendly data server (*). Wind fields over the ocean have been also studied through the wind challenger project and support for national sailing teams.
