Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • China
  • Oceanography
  • Seismology

Fumihiko Imamura spends much of his time researching Seismology, Shore, Tsunami earthquake, Field survey and Reef. His work on Paleontology expands to the thematically related Seismology. His study in Shore is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Satellite imagery, Current, Seismotectonics and Computer simulation.

His Tsunami earthquake study incorporates themes from Aftershock, Subduction, Geodesy and Far East. The various areas that Fumihiko Imamura examines in his Reef study include Storm wave and Geomorphology. His Oceanography research includes elements of Deposition and Sedimentation.

His most cited work include:

  • The 869 Jogan tsunami deposit and recurrence interval of large-scale tsunami on the Pacific coast of northeast Japan (274 citations)
  • DEVELOPING FRAGILITY FUNCTIONS FOR TSUNAMI DAMAGE ESTIMATION USING NUMERICAL MODEL AND POST-TSUNAMI DATA FROM BANDA ACEH, INDONESIA (221 citations)
  • Building damage characteristics based on surveyed data and fragility curves of the 2011 Great East Japan tsunami (146 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Fumihiko Imamura mostly deals with Seismology, Oceanography, Forensic engineering, Tsunami earthquake and Indian ocean. The study incorporates disciplines such as Shore and Computer simulation in addition to Seismology. His Oceanography research integrates issues from Deposition, Sediment and Sediment transport.

Sediment transport is a subfield of Geomorphology that Fumihiko Imamura explores. Fumihiko Imamura integrates several fields in his works, including Forensic engineering and Fragility. He integrates Indian ocean and Sri lanka in his research.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (42.80%)
  • Oceanography (11.83%)
  • Forensic engineering (9.68%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Seismology (42.80%)
  • Forensic engineering (9.68%)
  • Oceanography (11.83%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of study are Seismology, Forensic engineering, Oceanography, Environmental planning and Natural hazard. In his articles, Fumihiko Imamura combines various disciplines, including Seismology and Field survey. Fumihiko Imamura regularly ties together related areas like Tsunami hazard in his Forensic engineering studies.

Fumihiko Imamura regularly links together related areas like Sediment transport in his Oceanography studies. His work on Disaster risk reduction as part of his general Environmental planning study is frequently connected to Preparedness, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Landslide research incorporates elements of Submarine and Bathymetry.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Solving the Puzzle of the September 2018 Palu, Indonesia, Tsunami Mystery: Clues from the Tsunami Waveform and the Initial Field Survey Data (48 citations)
  • Public-private collaboration for disaster risk management: A case study of hotels in Matsushima, Japan (33 citations)
  • Coastal Subsidence Induced Several Tsunamis During the 2018 Sulawesi Earthquake (29 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • China
  • Oceanography
  • Civil engineering

Fumihiko Imamura mainly investigates Forensic engineering, Emergency management, Seismology, Shore and Civil engineering. His Forensic engineering study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Flow depth, Tsunami wave and Hydrodynamic forces. His Emergency management research also works with subjects such as

  • Environmental planning, which have a strong connection to Natural hazard, Flood myth and Climate change,
  • Disaster mitigation, which have a strong connection to Land use and Table.

He is interested in Landslide, which is a field of Seismology. His research in Shore tackles topics such as Storm which are related to areas like Sedimentary structures, Sedimentary rock and Geomorphology. His Civil engineering research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Information and Communications Technology, Countermeasure and Public relations.
