Progress in Medical Geology

Editor(s): Motomu Ibaraki, Hiroko Mori

Book Description

This volume represents a compendium of research conducted by international scholars who participated in the 2nd Symposium on Advances in Geospatial held during “The 5th International Conference on Medical Geology” in Arlington, Virginia, USA, in 2013. The research topics dealt with here mainly focus on the new scientific field of medical geology used to address a variety of human health issues and diseases specifically related to geological materials and earth-system processes. This volume will be of interest to those who wish to learn about current and historical health issues relating to geological materials or other environmental factors. It also represents a useful guide to learning the interdisciplinary approach to problem-solving in the field of medical geology.

Motomu Ibaraki is known internationally for his work on theoretical aspects of mass transport, contaminant hydrogeology, and groundwater modelling. He is currently conducting research on the human health and environmental problems caused by changes in water quality and quantity. His other research fields include scientific communication and water/energy sustainability. He is a core developer of United States Geological Survey’s groundwater flow simulator MODFLOW.

Hiroko Mori has a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering and a Master’s in Hydrology. She is currently a PhD student in the Environmental Science graduate program at Ohio State University, USA. Her research interests include coupling hydrological models and mosquito life cycle models to investigate vector-borne disease transmission in the Northern Great Plains region.
