  Li Xuegang, Ph.D., professor. In recent years, he has participated in more than 10 projects, such as the National Natural Science Foundation, the public Science and Technology Research Funds Projects of Ocean, the Strategic Priority Research Program of Chinese Academy of Sciences, etc. His main research field is marine geochemistry and His interest is focused on the hypoxia in the ocean and carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, silicon and other biogenic elements cycle. He has published dozens of papers in Chinese and English journals such as the Biogeochemistry, Scientia Marinna, Marine Pollution Bulletin, Acta Oceanologica Sinica, Journal of Environmental Sciences, analytical chemistry, etc.



Ph.D., 2004, Graduate University of Chinese Academy of Sciences.

M.S., 1996, Changchun College of geology

B.S., 1992, Changchun College of geology.

Research Interests:

Marin Biogeochemistry, Marine Chemistry


Academic Achievements

1. A series of monthly global 1°×1° gridded dataset of pCO2, TA, DIC, DO, pH were constructed by a General Regression Neural Network (GRNN) method.  Based on the datasets, refined the global ocean carbon sink strengthening after a receding in the 1990s .

2. The distribution of biogenic elements in typical seamount of the Western Pacific Ocean is clarified, and the chemical evidence of the existence of Taylor column in seamounts was found.

3. The separation and identification method of allelochemicals released by jellyfish in seawater were established, and the controlling factors of allelochemicals released by jellyfish were explained.

4. The inorganic carbon in sediments were divided into different forms in the first time, and found that inorganic carbon of HCl form may be one of the final resting places of atmospheric CO2.

5. It was found that the silicate accumulation in sediment is the key reason of silicate limiting to phytoplankton growth in the Jiaozhou Bay.

Honors and Awards:

1. The assessment of marine ecological damage and its repair technology for the oil spill accident in Bohai, 2014, The second class prize of Marine Science and Technology Award.

2. Study on the Budgets and the evolution process of important biogenic elements in the South Yellow Sea, 2010, The second class prize of Innovation Achievements Award of State Oceanic Administration.

3. Study on the key biogeochemical process of China sea, 2006, the third class prize of the Shandong natural science award.

4. Study on inorganic carbon in offshore environments, 2005, outstanding doctoral dissertations of Shandong Province
