2021 Symposium

Online Symposium on Ocean Circulation, Ecosystem, HypoxiA and CoNsequences (OCEAN_HK) 2021


The annual symposium of “Ocean Circulation, Ecosystem and HypoxiA around Hong Kong watsers (OCEAN_HK)” is held online on 16 July 2021. The symposium is organized by RGC funded Theme-based Research Scheme project: “Diagnosis and prognosis of intensifying eutrophication, hypoxia and the ecosystem consequences around Hong Kong waters: coupled physical-biogeochemical-pollution studies”. The team has completed stage one of the project plan with favorable outcome, this symposium will serve to review the project progress, and draw on collective wisdom and absorb all useful ideas for future years. Meanwhile, scientists from mainland China and overseas will also attend the symposium, it will be a scarce occasion to have a high-level scientific discussion, regarding to eutrophication and hypoxia in the ocean, in Hong Kong. We aim to advance full-spectrum understanding of physical, biogeochemical, and pollution processes that control the eutrophication and hypoxia. We emphasize interdisciplinary study with world-class methodology and multi-scale perspective of ocean in the linked river-estuary-shelf-basin system.
