  Chair Professor

Prof. Gan conducts hard-core scientific study of ocean circulation, marine ecosystem dynamics and numerical ocean modeling in the China Seas. The research inter-links the processes over estuary-shelf-open ocean basin. Interdisciplinary research in coupled physical-biogeochemical dynamics through numerical modeling, field measurement and process study in the ocean are developed.
