AOGS Election of Office Bearers - 2014 to 2016


Xiujun WANG (Wendy)(CV)
Research Scientist

The Asia-Oceania region has the largest population with profound human activity. Land-Use and Land-Cover Change significantly influence biogeochemical cycles not only on the lands but also the associated ocean. There have also been climate changes in this region with implications for the terrestrial and marine ecosystem. While Biogeosciences is a new section of the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS), I believe this section will become an important one in addressing the interaction of humans with climate, hydrology, biogeochemistry, and ecosystem in the coming decade. I am willing to serve the Biogeosciences Section of the AOGS. My mission is to promote scientific research in biogeosciences in the Asia-Oceania region, and also to promote woman scientists’ participation in biogeosciences, particularly within developing countries. I will play an active role in organizing scientific meetings and workshop in biogeosciences, in educating and nurturing the next generation of scientists, and in promoting international collaboration across Asia and Oceania.
