LISST-VSF delivery in China

May 31, 2022

The Ocean University of China has taken delivery of a LISST-VSF from Sequoia!  The LISST-VSF is an autonomous, submersible instrument for measuring the volume scattering function (VSF) of water with depolarization, and covers the angular range from 0.094 to 150°. Sequoia’s local distributor, China-OREs has supported the effort and works closely with the University contributing many scientific technologies across the organization.

Ocean University of China boasts two national key disciplines (including ten sub-disciplines) and 20 provincial key disciplines. Seven key research labs affiliated with the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China, nine key research labs affiliated with Shandong Province, and four key research labs affiliated with Qingdao Municipality have been set up in the university. In addition, the university has three engineering research centers affiliated with Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China and two engineering research centers affiliated to Shandong Province. The Qingdao Marine Science and Technology National Laboratory, headed by OUC, with an estimated total investment of one billion Chinese yuan, is currently under construction. The university has also set up a national base for training talents to be engaged in basic research and teaching in the fields of oceanology and marine chemistry.
