South China Sea Fluvial Sediments and Environmental Changes (2008-2017)
The project, originally titled Fluvial Sediment Supply to the South China Sea: Anthropogenic and Natural Aspects, has been implemented since May 2008, i.e. Phase I (May 2008-May 2010) and Phase II (May 2010-May 2012). The investigation of fluvial sediments in all surrounding rivers of the South China Sea has been completed. The new phase (May 2012-May 2014) of the project will aim to the fluvial sediment source-to-sink process on the shelf and in the deep basin of the South China Sea and its interaction with environmental change and human activity. Therefore, the title is updated as “South China Sea Fluvial Sediments and Environmental Changes (FluSed)”.
