The establishment of the State Key Laboratory of Satellite Ocean Environment Dynamics (SOED) was approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology in July 2006. The lab passed the initial inspection in December 2009. SOED was restructured on the existing Laboratory of Ocean Dynamic Processes and Satellite Oceanography (LOPSO), gathering talents of traditional disciplines of physical oceanography, marine remote sensing and marine ecological environment at the Second Institute of Oceanography, Ministry of Natural Resources of the People’s Republic of China.
Motivated by vital needs for protecting national maritime rights and interests and for disaster prevention and mitigation, and with the goals of improving technology and theory used for establishing three-dimensional marine environmental monitoring and prediction systems, the staff at SOED carries out research on satellite marine environment dynamics, with an emphasis on application. The lab creates unique marine science and technology platform with distinctive international influences. There are three main research themes at SOED: Technology and Application of Satellite Remote Sensing, Ocean Dynamic Processes and Ecosystems, Ocean Circulation and Climate Change. In addition, there are four supporting platforms: National Marine Satellite Ground Station, China Argo Real-Time Data Center, Computing and Data Center, and Marine Instrument Sharing Platform. These platforms serve marine observation data not only to researchers but also to marine laboratories nationwide.
“Oceanic Satelltie Remote Sensing Technology Innnovation Team” was selected by the Ministry of Science and Technology’s Innovation Talent Promotion Program in 2013. Greated by Academician PAN Delu, the team is one of the backbones of SOED. The team has carries out a series of systematic and innovative studies in satellite ocean remote sensing theoretical analysis, remote sensing system and satellite remote sensing application, forming a distinctive research characteristic and enjoying certain international influences. Serving the national needs, the team aims at the forefront of science and makes new contributions to the development of interdisciplinary studies of satellite oceanography and ocean dynamics.
