The 5th International Symposium on Remote Sensing of the Indian Ocean-South China Sea and Typhoon Sciences

(IOSCS & Typhoon 2015)

   International Cooperation in Marine Science Research for the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road;

24-26 Aug 2015, Guangzhou, China

1. Introduction

Construction of the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road is the major national strategic need to promote regional cooperation and the harmonious development. Natural hazards have become a problem of great concern in many parts of the world. Typhoons are the highest frequency and most serious disasters in the world. Meanwhile, typhoon induced sea water mixing and upwelling provide new life to the ocean. Carrying out the research on the ecological effects and emergency management of typhoons can provide important information on marine resources and economic cooperation research under the category of global climate change.

The Maritime Silk Road that crosses the South China Sea and the Indian Ocean, both of which are the oceans most affected by typhoons, is critical. Mastering the influence of typhoons on the ocean’s ecological environment can provide a theoretical and scientific basis for economic cooperation and disaster prevention as related to the Maritime Silk Road.

“The International Workshops on the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea” were held in 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012; “Cross Strait Workshops on Typhoon Impacts and Crisis Management” were held in 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2014. On August 24-26th, The 5th International Symposium of Remote Sensing of the Indian Ocean-South China Sea and Typhoon Sciences (IOSCS & Typhoon 2015) will be held at Guangdong University of Foreign Studies Guangzhou, China. We invite scientists to attend our meeting to discuss hot issues on typhoon research and the Maritime Silk Road.
