Research themes

- spacio-temporal evolution of precipitations resulting from the south-east Asian monsoon via its impact on the detrital discharge from the main rivers and of the run-off to the sea and the changes in the properties of surface waters.

- Past variability of the connection between the west-pacific circulation and the Indian ocean (Indonesian Throughflow), one of the most active current in the world, and its impact on the global thermohaline circulation.

-Variability of the oceanic circulation in the marginal seas of west Pacific (in particular the South China Sea) at different time scales.

- Phase relationship between monsoon variations, surface and deep circulation and the different forcing and teleconnections with the high latitudes using precise chronostratigraphic tool for long distance correlation.
