This course provides an overview of the current status of regional ocean climate and the common coastal disasters that pose threats to the economic and social development in the Asia-Pacific region. It provides an opportunity for participants to exchange the research progress on climate change, sea level rise and assessment, ocean disaster mitigation, etc. One day will be dedicated to operation and maintenance of ocean observing system in the Asia-Pacific region, from which the in-situ oceanographic and meteorological data are critical to ocean and climate studies. The course is a mix of both practical and theoretical sessions.
Aims and Objectives
- Share the research progresses on climate change, sea level rising, ocean and climate data QC, adaptation to ocean and coastal disaster, etc.
