This division reconstructs disaster prevention/mitigation technologies on the basis of synthesis of lessons obtained from the 2011 Great East-Tohoku Disaster and analysis of the disaster generation mechanisms. The deformation and regional destruction processes of the earthquake and tsunami are investigated by the integration of the observed data, frontal development of remote sensing technologies, and advancement of numerical simulations. The existing prevention/mitigation systems are examined on the effectiveness for the mega hazards and innovated. Through the application of our findings to the area of high possibility in mega disaster occurrence, this division aims for the contribution to enhance the preparedness for the risk reduction and early recovery.
