AOGS Election of Office Bearers - 2014 to 2016


Gangneung-Wonju National University

As a President candidate, it is my great honor to make a brief statement on future vision and plan for AOGS. AOGS was established in 2003 and in recent years has greatly promoted geophysical sciences for public benefit in Asia and Oceania with a high economical growth by dynamically development of science and industrial technology, even North and South Americas, Europe and Africa.

AOGS has developed and utilized geophysical science and technology in Asia and Oceania through mutual exchange of scientific knowledge and cooperation among scientists and now it stands just before its mature age. AOGS may have to concentrate its efforts to perform basic and applied researches for each nation and sustainable development of earth and planetary resources for peaceful green growth and better lives of humanity.

I am meteorologist, environmental scientist and physical oceanographer with over 40 years experiences in modeling researches. Through carrying out many kinds of research projects with two Ph.D. degrees from University of Texas at Austin (USA) and Peking University (China), my research interests cover meteorology, environmental science & Engineering and oceanography fields in collaboration with scientific groups at universities and government institutions in North America (USA, Canada), Europe (England, German, Spain, France, Russia, etc.), Asia (Iran, Turkey, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, Japan, etc.), South America (Chile, Mexico, etc.) and even Africa (Nigeria). I have been Korean Government Representative of Antarctic Governmental Meetings, Presidents of Korean Environmental Sciences Societies and AOGS (AS section), Deputy Director General of IBC (England) and Committee members of Korean and international scientific societies. I have been also acting as Editor-in-Chief of 5 international journals and Editor of 18 ones (USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Italy, India, Nigeria, etc.), so far.

With passion, I would like to devote myself to take on any challenges and hardships, flexibly responding to more rapidly changeable environment of global geophysical sciences and technologies, if I could be fortunately elected with members’ warm support as AOGS President for next period as below:
