                    Twilight Zone Of Western Pacific Ocean Ecological Research   

 

Aim

   TOWER will deliever new knowlege of ecosystem in the twilight zone of the Western Pacifici Ocean.With

 invention of new sampling and observation equipments, this project will obtain high-quality in situ time-course

 samples and images of organisms in different size scales and carry out long-term monitering of water current and

 geochemical factors.This requires tight coorperations between our engineers and scientists to fullfill the goal

 of TOWER to achieve world class modeling and quantification of vertical element cycles and  in the twilight zone.

   The South China Sea (SCS) as a part of the Western Pacific Ocean is under high impacts of open oceans and human

 activities. TOWER will put efforts in understanding the dynamics and formation of SCS twilight ecosystem.This will

 help policy makers to estimate the ecological crisis in SCS under unlimited discharge of wastes and extensive fishery

  resource harvesting.

 Funding

  TOWER is supported by Shenzhen Pengcheng Scholar grant and National Natural Science Fundation of China.
