State Key Laboratory of Marine Geology (Tongji University)
The State Key Laboratory of Marine Geology at Tongji University holds a grand objective of researching environmental evolution and natural resources in oceans and neighboring continental regions, and features especially in deep sea basic research through international collaboration. We participate in ocean drilling and other large international research programs, emphasizing the earth system science principle and making efforts to achieve sea-land and ancient-modern integrations. We rely on broader national and international collaborations for cross-disciplinary integrations and apply high-resolution measurement and data-processing techniques, and at the same time explore and develop new ideas, new approaches and new methods for marine geological research.
The Laboratory boasts several key fields of research activities: paleoceanography and paleoenvironment, continental margin evolution and marine sedimentation, submarine resources, deep sea organic geochemistry, and seafloor process and observation. Aided by several large analytic instruments including stable isotope ratio mass spectrometer, we undertake national 973 and 863 programs as well a series of other large research projects supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and have published numerous scientific papers of international standard. Characterized by deep sea and integrated sea-land research, the Laboratory is becoming a national center for training high-level scientists to embark on international deep sea research frontier and IODP and other basic scientific studies as well as a national base for deep sea education in China.
