Kazuyuki Miyazaki is a scientist who specializes in data assimilation of atmospheric composition. His research activities range from the development of chemical data assimilation systems to the study of the impact of air quality on climate and human health. He produced decadal chemical reanalyses based on assimilation of multi-constituent satellite measurements. The reanalysis concentration and emission data products provided unique information on decadal changes in the atmospheric environment that can be used for various applications in air quality and climate research. His current research focuses on development of a multi-model-based chemical data assimilation system and its applications to air quality and climate studies, observing system simulation experiments (OSSE), satellite data and chemistry-climate model evaluations, and the combined use of chemically reactive and carbon gases for emission estimations.
