My main interest is to understand snow-atmosphere interaction in the Cryosphere. Recently, I'm interested in the Greenland ice sheet, where abruput mass loss is ongoing now. For these purpose I perform in-situ measurements as well as numerical modeling with the Snow Metamorphism and Albedo Process (SMAP) model (Niwano et al., 2012, JGR).

■ A new polar regional climate model NHM-SMAP v1.00 is coming in 2017!
