As part of the workshop activities of the JSECE, the Acquisition and Provision of Information on Erosion Control Engineering Via Computer Networks workshop (headed by Takafumi Tanaka, Agricultural Department, and Nagoya University) was started in 1995. Based on the research theme of this workshop, the workshop discussed a) the effectiveness of the Internet for research, b) development of the environment that enables the provision of information, and c) disaster prevention information via a network. The workshop also engaged in preparing the JSECE website.
The workshop was dissolved to become the JSECE Academic Network Information Committee (later renamed as the Academic Information Network Committee), which took over the activities of the original workshop and still continues them.
The sabo mailing list was originally born as sbws-net prepared by Kiyoshi Honda, Graduate School & Faculty of Bioresources, in 1995 using the computer of the faculty as the host as one of the outcomes of the above workshop. Then, the server was switched to a private provider in November 1999, and the network made a renewed start as the sabo mailing list. In April 2005, we migrated the sabo mailing list to infoseek, a dedicated mailing list service.
The aim of the mailing list is to share and exchange via a computer network knowhow for using information related to erosion control engineering and encourage free contributions to the mailing list by users about sabo, forest hydrology, meteorology, weather, vegetation, remote sensing, GIS and other topics. Please send us new information, questions or opinions that may be related to erosion control engineering.
