The changing ocean has a great impact on the various organisms in the ocean and on humans.
We urgently need to scientifically clarify the important process and mechanism of changes in the coastal ecological environment and develop a prediction system to improve the ability of the marine environment to increase oceanic resilience of coastal countries.
The proposed project will make contributions to marine natural disaster prevention of countries in the Indo-Pacific region. The project will have major focus on education and intelligent collaborations among young scientists. There will be summer course being offered to students from all participating institutions every year, together with personnel exchange program.
The technology for developing regional physical-biological modeling will be introduced and the operational forecasting systems for regional environments are expected to be developed in the coastal regions along the Indian and western Pacific Ocean.
