Recently, Professor Tang Danling, a leading talent introduced by the Southern Marine Science and Engineering Guangdong Laboratory (Guangzhou) and the leader of the U team for the Comprehensive Research on the ecological and environmental rights of the South China Sea, was invited to give a lecture on "Training Course on Marine Scientific Research in the South China Sea". Tang Danling's lecture is divided into "Typhoon ‘Wind-Pump’ Impacts on Marine Ecological Environments" and "Satellite Remote Sensing of Marine Ecology: Opportunities and Challenges.
Tang Danling used to be the chairman of PORSEC and PACON. Her lecture introduced the Marine satellite remote sensing technology and the theoretical framework of "Wind-Pump" ecological and environmental effects, systematically expounded the impact of typhoon "Wind-Pump" on the ecological environment of the South China Sea, and discussed the opportunities and challenges of Marine ecological satellite remote sensing through dynamic observation and monitoring of the changes of Marine ecological and environmental elements. Using satellite remote sensing technology and platforms as "antennae" and "eyes", she studies everything from tiny single-celled phytoplankton to giant typhoon systems.
In recent decades, due to climate change, the ocean and atmospheric circulation in the South China Sea have changed significantly. Extreme Marine meteorological processes such as tropical cyclones, storm surges, internal waves and strong currents occur frequently, causing serious impacts on the Marine environment and ecosystem of the South China Sea and causing heavy casualties and economic losses to China and ASEAN Member States (AMS). In order to better understand the natural features of the South China Sea, enable China and AMS to better utilize and protect the South China Sea in a sustainable and scientific way, and further promote cooperation in Marine scientific research in the South China Sea, the Ministry of Natural Resources, People’s Republic of China held the "Training Course on Marine Scientific Research in the South China Sea".
More than 10 renowned experts and scholars were invited to give lectures and share their experiences and best practices in various fields of Marine scientific research. More than 170 people, mainly from AMS and China, attended the training. This research training has further promoted the Marine scientific research in the South China Sea, and greatly promoted the Marine scientific research in the fields of climate change, Marine ecosystem and environmental protection in the South China Sea.
