The government of Japan has been operating the country under the unique climatic conditions in the Asia Monsoon area. Rivers and river basins in particular provide the bases of production and living, and play a central role among national infrastructure systems. Understanding the behavior of rivers has therefore been considered important in all times, and numerous researches have been made and the results put to practical use.

As issues have been emerging such as global warming, the need of restoration of biodiversity and supply of safe water resources, higher-level and more effective identification of complex water circulation mechanism beyond the understanding of fluid behavior, the focus of past studies, is required and comprehensive understanding of material circulation, ecology of life and economic analysis is demanded.

Numerous water-related analysis (hydraulic, hydrological and material circulation analysis) software products have been developed in Japan to understand complex topography and climate with the advancement of calculating equipment and numerical analysis techniques. Each research institution, business or researcher has been incorporating knowledge or ideas into software and applying it to the identification of hydraulic phenomena and river administration.

Japanese software, however, has not advanced enough in terms of usability and connectivity between themselves and databases. Work has yet to be done with respect to the transparency of software. It is therefore necessary to develop an environment for ensuring the usability, compatibility and transparency of software to make an effective analysis of water circulation mechanism.

Under the above conditions, this project aims at enabling higher level numerical simulation currently not available, and making proposals concerning river and water management, by building a common platform of software capable of simultaneously running multiple analysis engines (element models) for various hydraulic and hydrological phenomena.

This project requests researchers and engineers to participate in the development of a common platform and element model to achieve the objective of the project in the Asia Monsoon area under common climatic conditions.
