5th NPOCE webinar on
Western Pacific Ocean's role in the variability of biogeochemical processes
09:00-10:45AM, October 19, 2022, GMT+8.
4 Presentations: 20min Talk + 5min Q&A/each
Convener: Fei Chai (Xiamen University)
Shin-ichi Ito (The University of Tokyo)
Dr. Shin-ichi Ito is a Professor of Fisheries Environmental Oceanography at the Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute, the University of Tokyo. He is broadly interested in climate impacts on ocean ecosystems. Shin-ichi was responsible for the development a fish growth model coupled to the lower-trophic-level ecosystem model NEMURO.FISH. His laboratory conducts hydrographic observations, microplastic surveys, swimming and respirometry experiments of fish to develop fish growth model, otolith oxygen isotope ratio analysis to estimate the migration routes of fish, ocean environmental DNA (OceanDNA) observation to detect the distribution of fish species. Shin-ichi serves on a couple of editorial boards and as a lead author of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) WG-II Sixth Assessment Report.
Zhimian Cao (Xiamen University)
Sea-air CO2 fluxes and carbon export and remineralization in the subtropical Northwestern Pacific
Dr. Zhimian Cao is a Professor in State Key Laboratory of Marine Environmental Science and College of Ocean and Earth Sciences of Xiamen University. He received his Ph.D. in Chemical Oceanography from Xiamen University in 2013, followed by two years’ postdoctoral research at GEOMAR sponsored by the Humboldt Fellowship. His current research interests are on ocean carbon cycling, ocean silicon cycling, and marine biogeochemistry of nontraditional stable isotopes (e.g., Si and Ba). As the leading or chief scientist, he organized several cruises to the Northwestern Pacific including GEOTRACES-GP09 section cruise and GEOTRACES-GPpr15 process study cruise.
Xiaogang Xing (Second Institute of Oceanography, Ministry of Natural Resources)
Phytoplankton responses to synoptic-scale events observed by BGC-Argo in the Northwest Pacific Ocean
Xiaogang Xing, Professor of the Second Institute of Oceanography of China. He received his Ph.D. degree in Physical Oceanography from the Ocean University of China in 2008. He has been in the Laboratory of Oceanography of Villefranche (France) as a postdoctoral fellow from 2008 to 2011, and in the University Laval (Canada) as an invited professor from 2015 to 2017. He is the member of BGC-Argo data management team in the international Argo Program, deputy chief of Observation and Research Station of Global Ocean Argo System of China, in charge of China BGC-Argo deployment and data quality control. His research interests focus on the BGC-Argo data correction methods, and the data application to the marine ecosystem dynamics. He has published more than 60 scientific papers, with 27 as the first author.
Peng Xiu (South China Sea Institute of Oceanology, Chinese Academy of Sciences)
Modeling the impact of iron on biological processes and carbon cycling in the Pacific Ocean
Dr. Peng Xiu is a research scientist at South China Sea Institute of Oceanology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SCSIO/CAS). He develops biogeochemical models (e.g., CoSiNE-31, CoSiNE-Fe) and utilizes them to understand marine ecosystem dynamics and ocean carbon cycles in a changing climate. His research interests currently include the role of iron in the Pacific Ocean, mesoscale and submesoscale processes, and their links with carbon export.
