Professor Ching-Ray Chang and his collaborators publish “Yang–Mills physics in spintronics” paper in <Physics Reports>

The National Taiwan University has, in an international team effort, collaborated with the Chinese Culture University, the University of Taipei, the National University of Singapore, the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, and the Tokyo Institute of Technology, to write a review article on the physics of Yang-Mills in spintronics. This article was recently published in the Physics Reports (Oct 2020). Physics Reports has always been one of the academic journals with the highest impact factor in physics community. The 5-Year Impact Factor is 24.659, which is much higher than the…

Life histories determine divergent population trends for fishes under climate warming Hui-Yu Wang, Sheng-Feng Shen, Ying-Shiuan Chen, Yun-Kae Kiang, and Mikko Heino Dr. Hui-Yu Wang (IO NTU), Dr. Sheng-Feng Shen (AS BRC), and Dr. Mikko Heino (UiB, Norway) have conducted the first assessment of warming-induced effects on various types marine fishes in the Indo-Pacific. Their findings reveal that warming impacts are not uniform; instead, warming impacts are contingent on life histories of fishes. Their study was published in Nature Communications on Aug 14, 2020. The research team investigated temperature effects…

Climate changes impact on the terrestrial water cycle and water resource Groundwater is a critical freshwater resource for humans and ecosystems. This international cooperation research led by the Department of Atmospheric Sciences, College of Science, National Taiwan University, investigates the potential groundwater storage changes in the 21st century. The study is published online in Nature Communication in July 2020.Groundwater provides critical freshwater supply, particularly in dry regions where surface water availability is limited. This research used a fully coupled climate model to investigate groundwater changes over seven vital aquifers identified…

NTU oceanographer and international team discovered ongoing and future tropical diversity decline Source:Services for Media, HKU How can patterns in the marine biodiversity of the past help us to understand how it may change in the future? A recent research by Drs Moriaki Yasuhara (School of Biological Sciences and Swire Institute of Marine Science, The University of Hong Kong), Chih-Lin Wei (Institute of Oceanography, National Taiwan University) and numerous international collaborators finds that the tropical diversity decline now seen in the ocean is not purely human induced, but nonetheless will…

Truncated age structure and warming temperature drive marine fishes into uneven spatial distribution, weakening their sustainability Jheng-Yu Wang, Ting-Chun Kuo, and Chih-hao Hsieh Prof. Chih-hao Hsieh and his master student Jheng-Yu Wang from NTU Institute of Oceanography together with Prof. Ting-Chun Kuo from NTOU found that fishing-induced age truncation and warming temperature drove marine fishes into uneven spatial distribution, weakening their sustainability. This study, published in Nature Communications (May 26), provides empirical evidence for long-lasting hypotheses explaining complex mechanisms underlying spatial distribution of marine fishes. These findings bear important implications…

A millennial coral record of Indian Ocean climate oscillation  This summer of 2019/20 in Australia, a positive Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) event set up extremely hot and dry conditions for the historically worst fires that ravaged Australia. An unprecedented 20% of the forest has been burned, resulting in ecological havoc, environmental pollution, and enormous property damage. Climate simulations also pointed out that this extreme climate will severely change the climate and environment of the countries around the Indian Ocean under the current global warming trend. But will this implication be…

NTU Institute of Oceanography conducts pioneering Seaglider observations, revealing striking interleaving layers in the Kuroshio Current east of Taiwan

Institute of Oceanography conducted the first Seaglider observations revealed striking interleaving layers in the Kuroshio east of Taiwan Source:MOST In 2015, with a vision of future observational technologies, the MOST sponsored the Marine Exploration Instrument Center at National Taiwan University (NTU) to purchase a Kongsberg Seaglider under the MOST granted integrated project “Observations of the Kuroshio Transport and Variability (OKTV).” The glider was aimed to collect data of hydrography, dissolved oxygen, fluorescence (can be converted to chlorophyll concentration) and back scatter of light in the water. Tasked with testing and…
