______________________________
MARINE ENVIRONMENTAL PROCESSES
Objectives :
1) To conduct integrated research of physical, biological and chemical oceanography in understanding the upwelling dynamics and its influence on productivity.
2) To provide a comprehensive understanding of different climate influence especially ENSO and monsoon towards South China Sea upwelling characteristics.
3) To assess fluxes of particles, biogeochemically important elements and representative contaminants from land sources through coastal zone.
4) To study the behaviour of chemical pollutants during the mixing in the estuary area.

ECOLOGICAL RESILIENCE
Objectives :
1) To examine the tropic level and connectivity of critical ecosystem at South China Sea.
2) To understand the response to environmental disturbances at species and population level.

OCEAN GOVERNANCE
Objectives :
1) To examine and subsequently propose a Marine Implementation Plan for the Terengganu state based on the findings of the environmental parameters from the other two research programmes;
2) To study the possibility and subsequently propose the protection of two sensitive sea areas in Terengganu coastal areas and waters by employing Marine Spatial Planning ; and
3) To propose legal solutions for Malaysia in dealing with unresolved maritime issues in the South China Sea.
