Diagnosis and prognosis of intensifying eutrophication, hypoxia and the ecosystem consequences around Hong Kong waters: coupled physical-biogeochemical-pollution studies
The research topics are covered by four interlinked tasks to determine:
- sources and sinks of nutrients and their biogeochemical controls,
- ecosystem dynamics and biological controls,
- pollutant and ecosystem impacts, and
- physical controls, synthesis, and future trends in the RES waters.

We conducted observational and numerical modeling studies to investigate the coupled circulation between Mirs Bay to the east of Hong Kong and the adjacent shelf sea during an upwelling season. We synthesized long- and short-term observations to characterize the circulations in the bay-shelf region and identified their linkage. We utilized a three-dimensional circulation model with … Continue reading Task 4: Coupled Shelf-Bay Circulation Dynamics
