Talk Title: Wind-induced modulation of shelf sediment dynamics
Brief Introduction: Houjie Wang is currently a professor in Ocean University of China (OUC), the dean of College of Marine Geosciences, OUC and the executive director of Laboratory for Marine Geology in Pilot National Laboratory for Marine Science and Technology (Qingdao) . He received his PhD degree in Marine Geology at OUC in 2002. His expertise is in the land-ocean interactions, estuarine and coastal sediment dynamics, and shelf sedimentary processes based on the field observations, laboratory analysis and numerical modelling. His scientific contributions include highlighting work on the response of delta depositional system to the changing environment of large river basin, hyperpyncal flows in highly turbid estuary, and muddy sediment dynamics with complex shelf circulation. He has authored and co-authored >100 peer-reviewed articles in professional journals such as Earth-Science Reviews, Global and Planetary Change and Journal of Geophysical Research with total citations >5000. He served as Associate Editor for Anthropocene Coasts, as well as editorial members for several Chinese professional journals. He is the leading PI of the Key R&D Project funded by the Ministry of Science and Technology, China (2016-2021). He has served as the Chief Scientist for the NSFC-orientated open cruise in the Bohai and Yellow Seas from 2011 to 2018.
