Participating scientists

Dr. Dongfeng Xu (SIO), Jianfang Chen (SIO)

Project description

Topic 1: Coupled mesoscale physical-biogeochemical-biological processes for offshelf transport

Effects of air-sea interaction, topographic steering and instability on formation of mesoscale jets and eddies
Submeso-mesoscale processes (upwelling and downwelling)
Transport and retention of nutrients and biota by submeso-mesoscale processes
Spatial variability and temporal evolution of plankton community structures

Topic 2: Biogeochemical processes

Nutrient transport, transformation, recycling and limitation
DOC and POC export, transformation, and age
Transport and mixing of water masses, nutrients and biota

Topic 3: Plankton dynamics

Topic 4: Fishery

Topic 5: Synthesis and modeling
