The Impact of Global Warming on Ocean-Atmosphere Feedback Strength at Tropical Indian Ocean

With the scientific and financial support from APN, the participants of the project performed kinds of activities based on the proposed research program. The participants of the project conducted research activities in order to reveal the variability of air-sea interaction feedback strength under different projects, such as current and global warming scenarios. The results from the research activities had been published in the peer-reviewed journal and some of the results been cited by IPCC AR5. This project also held a workshop with the purpose of enhancing the internal communication among project staffs, specifically for the discussion of disseminating the project outcome into the public as well as the police makers. The representative from the Monsoon Onset Monitoring and its Social Economy Impact (MOMSEI) project, pilot project of Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission /Sub-Commission for the Western Pacific (IOC/WESTPAC), agreed to cooperate with this project and invited the project leader to join the relevant scientific activities for better spreading the project outcome to different research groups as well as potential scientific users. This project also contributes to enhance the international marine cooperation between China and Maldives, Indonesia. The new project, titled as “The Java Upwelling dynamic and the relevant ecosystem variation (JUV)”, resulted from this project was supported for the next few years by SOA for better understanding the local climate variability over tropical Indian Ocean region, which will also give relative contribution to International Indian Ocean Expedition – 2 programs.
