Lead Team: Tainan Hydraulics Laboratory (THL) and Research Center of Ocean
Environment and Technology (RCOET), National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), plan
to set up a research center, “International Wave Dynamics Research Center,
IWDRC, NCKU” for wave dynamics fundamental research and application.
group of IWDRC will include the THL and RCOET, NCKU from Taiwan side and the
Moscow M.V. Lomonosov State University (MSU), Wave Research Center, A.M.
Prokhorov General Physics Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences (WRC, GPIRAS)
and P.P. Shirshov Institute of Oceanology, Russian Academy of Sciences (IORAS)
from the Russia side.
will comprise three groups, namely, Theoretical Laboratory of Non-linear Wave
Processes, Experimental Laboratory of Non-linear Wave Processes, Laboratory of
Laser and Acoustic Remote Sensing of the Ocean.
contribute to homeland security maintenance of Taiwan’s water conservancy and
coastal and marine physics, chemistry, environmental background investigation,
and to large-scale transnational study as well, according to Prof. Yang
Ray-Yeng, the leader of international cooperation and research and development
group of IWDRC, NCKU.
with its focus on wave dynamics fundamental research and applications will
upgrade to an integrated transnational Taiwan-Russia team with a high research
capacity and sufficient equipment, said Yang.
on-going international cooperation projects between Taiwan and Russia, with the
facilities from THL and the research findings of marine laser physics and
underwater acoustic from GPIRAS aim to contribute to marine environmental
of research buildings is over 12 hectares is located on the Annan campus NCKU.
Regarding to manpower resources, IWDRC will have more than 25 PhD. researchers
from Taiwan and Russia.
