October 21-November 25, 2010, Second Joint cruise of ROSE project

The second cruise of ROSE was conducted from October 21 - November 25, 2010. The participants of this cruise are from several research institutes of State Oceanic Administration, and South China Sea Institute of Oceanography of Chinese Academic of Science, and Scientists from Thailand and Indonesia. Totally 32 stations are visited during the cruise, in the area from 7 - 15 north latitude, and from 111 - 118 east longitude, with the physical, biological, chemical observations.

March 29-30, 2011, Third International Workshop on Response of Marine Hazards to Climate Change in the Western Pacific

The third Workshop of ROSE was held, as a side meeting of 8th International Scientific Symposium of the IOC Sub-Commission for the Western Pacific, Busan, Republic of Korea, during March 29-30, 2011 with the support of IOC/WESTPAC and the First Institute of Oceanography, State Oceanic Administration of China. More than forty scientists from China, Indonesia, Korea, Vietnam, Japan, Malaysia Russia, and Thailand etc participated in the workshop. The workshop was considered as a follow-up activity of the ROSE. The workshop aims to exchange scientific knowledge about the response of ocean hazards to climate change in the western pacific, reviewing the work and progress made in the last year during project implementation, and exploring further cooperation opportunities in joint cruise observation and research in the year of 2011 and 2012.

October - November 2011, Third Joint cruise of ROSE project

35 scientists from 8 different universities and institutes including the First Institute of Oceanography, State Oceanic Administration, China, the Third Institute of Oceanography State Oceanic Administration China, South China Sea Institute of Oceanology Chinese Academy of Sciences, Institute of Oceanology Chinese Academy of Sciences, Ocean University of China, North China Sea Branch of the State Oceanic Administration, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and Burapha University participated in the 3rd ROSE Cruise. The majors of scientists cover hydrology, meteorology, marine biology and marine chemistry. 27 stations in the middle of South China Sea are visited with the physical, meteorological, biological, chemical observations. The observations were taken after the main typhoon season in the South China Sea and west Pacific, which will be of great help to understand the response of marine environment to the extreme weather conditions.
