Design of Structure and Flow in the Earth Laboratory

Ito/Suzuki Lab, Creative Flow Research Division, Institute of Fluid Science, TOHOKU UNIVERSITY


Hello! It's Design of Structure and Flow in the Earth Lab!

The goal of our research is to build systems in which humans can live with nature sustainably. Subsurface rock formations play an important role in the energy system as a supply of geothermal energy, and as a disposal site for CO2 and radioactive waste. On the other hand, the rock structure is complex, and the utilization of subsurface resources should be designed in harmony with the natural fluid flow and stress conditions in the subsurface. In our research, we aim to design sustainable energy systems in harmony with the environment by understanding the natural "structure" and "flow". In addition, we have been exploring how new science and technology can be utilized in society and what an environmentally harmonious society may look like. In this respect, our research considers the exchange of people’s ideas and opinions on energy systems, energy production and energy use.
