As subsystems of an integrated simulator for coastal environmental space design, in the present study, we have attempted to develop coastal atmospheric and thermal comfort simulator, nearshore ecological water quality simulator and wind-blown sand and salt environment simulator.
Regarding coastal atmospheric environments and related thermal comfort, we performed field surveys on the micro-climate on a beach facing Tokyo Bay snmmer season, and analyzed the atmospheric characteristics on the beach. Based on these results we have developed a coastal atmospheric and thermal comfort simulator, which has been applied to a beach space design, especially for the layout of the vegetation, the beach sand area and others. In relation to the nearshore ecological water quality simulator, we carried out field observations both at Tokyo Bay and Kashima Coast facing the Pacific Ocean and have succeeded in numerically simulating their fundamental characteristics. For the wind-blown sand and salt environment simulator, we have executed field surveys at Hazaki Oceanographic Research Station of Ministry of Transport. The results of the data analyzes have clarified the various aspects of the environmental impacts due to the wind-blown salt particles and ground water salt. It has been succeeded to reproduced by numerical simulations the principal transport characteristics of these quantities.
