At the invitation of Professor Mike Williams, vice chairman of the international Southern Ocean Observing System, and Professor Walker Smith, chairman of the Ross Sea working group leadership, Professor Wang Zhaomin, School of Oceanography, Hehai University, recently became a member of the Ross Sea regional expert group of the international Southern Ocean Observing organization.
The Ross Sea is the southernmost sea area of the earth that can be reached by human navigation. It is also the best route to reach the Antarctic continent and the Antarctic point through ships. At the same time, the Ross Sea is also the most complete area of the Antarctic environmental protection zone system, which is of great value for studying the impact of climate change on Antarctica and even the world. It is known as the last intact "natural laboratory" on the earth. The sea water of the Ross Sea is rich in nutrients, with more than 16000 species of organisms. The marine reserve in the Ross Sea area set up here is the largest marine reserve in the world. The south of Ross Sea is the largest ice shelf in the Antarctic, and the Ross Sea is also an important source area of Antarctic bottom water (AABW). The Ross Sea region plays a key role in global ocean circulation, ice mass balance, sea level change, biogeochemical cycle of carbon and nutrients. China has paid close attention to the Ross Sea area and is building the fifth Antarctic Research Station on the Nanyan island on the west side of the Ross Sea.
In recent years, under the leadership of Professor Wang Zhaomin, the polar research team of Hehai University has been devoted to the study of polar sea air ice interaction, and has published 16 papers related to SCI journals in the past three years; team members have also been invited to attend academic conferences at home and abroad for many times, hosting international academic seminars and summer workshops. For the Ross Sea area, Professor Wang Zhaomin's team developed a high-resolution ocean sea ice ice shelf coupling model based on MIT general circulation model. At present, the model can achieve a horizontal resolution of ~ 1.5 km, including physical processes such as tides and mesoscale eddies, which has been in line with the international advanced level. This time, Professor Wang Zhaomin was invited to become a member of the Ross Sea regional expert group of the South Ocean international observation organization, indicating that the research results of the polar research team of Hehai University have been highly concerned by international experts.
