Ryusuke Hatano is a professor of Soil Science in the Division of Environmental Resources, Research faculty of Agriculture, Hokkaido University. He graduated from the Department of Agricultural Chemistry, Faculty of Agriculture, Hokkaido University in 1978 and he obtained his doctoral degree from the Division of Agricultural Chemistry of the same university in 1986. He contributed to the Department of Soil Science and Geology, Wageningen Agricultural University, the Netherlands for 10 months in 1992 as a visiting researcher; and he worked for evaluating a bypass flow in soil by applying a fractal dimension theory to the image of pore structure. Since 1995, he has been In-Charge of the Soil Science Laboratory at Hokkaido University. He has worked for various international joint research projects related to nutrient cycling in ecosystems, nutrient discharge to streams, and GHGs emissions from soil to atmosphere in East Siberia, South China, Japan, and tropical peatlands in Indonesia and Malaysia. These projects are closely related to sustainable development and the results show that the discharge of nutrients and emissions of GHGs are both positively and negatively impacted by human activities, especially agricultural managements and land use change. However, the impacts of human activities are different among the regions because different countries have different climates, ecosystems and soils. Therefore, he believes that a comparative study based on field monitoring is required to evaluate the impacts of human activities in each region, and also several comprehensive models previously proposed can be improved by using the data of field monitoring and used for the evaluation. He thinks that soil scientists should improve the technique of field monitoring and measure the phenomena in the fields as much as possible, because they are scientists understanding the problems in the fields most. He is also interested in the study on nitrogen and carbon dynamics in a regional which are combined with nitrogen and carbon budgets estimated from statistically activity data on agriculture. He has published more than 110 papers in peer reviewed Journals related to the sciences of agriculture, environment and soil. He has been a member of the Editorial Board of the Soil Science and Plant Nutrition, Pedosphere, Geoderma-Regional and the International Agrophysics. He is a previous president of Japanese Society of Soil Physics and the chair of Commission 4.3 - Soils and land use change - in International Union of Soil Science from August in 2010.
