Saga Plain locates on a famous very soft Ariake clay deposit. It faces Ariake Sea with a tidal range as high as 6 meters. Most lowlands locate between mountains and seas where the water can be easily gathered. As a result, lowlands have become the most active areas on earth for productive activities of human beings and other creatures. Therefore, to create a comfortable residential environment in lowland is a very important task. On the other hand lowland is easily affected by flood and polluted because of its topographical characteristics.

ILT as a unique institute on lowland technology in Japan will primarily carry out researches focusing on the problems on coastal lowland around Ariake Sea. Also, it aims to become a core research institute on lowland problems worldwide by publishing the high level research results.

To create or establish lowland science and as a new paradigm, ILT proposes the following research topics.
