Fields of survey and research:
To carry out the survey, research and evaluation of marine aggregates and related resources in China seas, participate in the investigation, evaluation and research of deep sea polymetallic nodules, crusts, hydrothermal sulfides and other mineral resources sponsored by
Survey and research on resource potential of marine aggregates and related resources
Survey and assessment of valuable marine heavy mineral resources
Investigation and evaluation of oceanic mineral resources
Comparative study of mineralization for ancient and modern seafloor hydrothermal sulfides
Study of paleo-oceanography and paleo-environment and their effects on oceanic mineralization
We have successively completed the survey and evaluation of marine aggregates and other detrital mineral resources in the Pearl River Estuary of the South China Sea, Zhoushan of the East China Sea, Chengshantou of the Yellow Sea, Liaodong Bay of the Bohai Sea, western Taiwan Strait and other offshore areas; drafted the technical specifications for investigation of inshore sand resources in China; ascertained the structure of shallow stratigraphy, seabed topography and the distribution pattern of marine aggregates in the surveyed areas; delineated the blocks where marine aggregates accumulate, estimated the potential of marine sand resources; and evaluated the possible impact of sea sand mining on offshore dynamic environment.
