Xinlong is passionate about oceanography. He grew up in a coastal city in China, and have always loved the sea. The ocean is an integral part of the climate system and has profound impacts on climate change. For example, the Southern Ocean has absorbed approximately 40% of the anthropogenic carbon since the pre-industrial era. This means that the Southern Ocean can regulate the carbon budget and greenhouse effect. Xinlong considers climate sciences critical to society. He wants to help promote the development of climate sciences, especially oceanography and improve the community's understanding of climate change. Therefore, Xinlong has chosen this project to explore the response of the SO fronts and meanders to climate change and the implications for carbon and heat cycles. From the moment of choosing oceanography as his major, Xinlong has been determined to pursue an academic career in physical oceanography and climate science. His goal is to become a great oceanographer, and to make his family and country proud.
