AbstractRecently, climate and social change have impacted on the river basin environment, it is important to conserve a sustainable river basin environment. However, in previous studies, the evaluation of the integrity of river basin has not been examined adequately. Therefore, we made an attempt to propose the method which is necessary to estimate the biogeochemical cycle between the terrestrial and coastal area in long-term for the Shiretoko Peninsula has a unique biogeochemical cycle system as a target field. We compiled the challenges and the perspective based on "climate and social change from previous to the current" and "the estimation method of the biogeochemical cycle between the terrestrial and coastal area" in this paper.
Key Words : climate change; social change; river basin, biogeochemical cycle between terrestrial and coastal area; Shiretoko peninsula
