王杉霖博士于2018年加盟厦门大学海洋与地球学院,成为近海海洋环境科学国家重点实验室的一员,现任海洋化学方向教授。王杉霖博士师从Jefferson Keith Moore教授,在2011年获得美国加州大学尔湾分校的地球系统科学博士学位。同年在“Advanced Study Program”博士后奖学金支持下到美国国家大气研究中心开展独立研究,期间曾在德州大学埃尔帕索分校任附属助理教授授课一个学期。2014年转至洛斯阿拉莫斯国家实验室任博士后研究员,2015年被该国家实验室聘为编制内科学家。

王杉霖博士研究兴趣广泛,其课题组主要利用地球系统模式和海洋生物地球化学模式研究:(1)高纬度地区海洋生物地球化学循环和生态过程的调控机制;(2)海洋生物地球化学循环对气候变化的响应和反馈;(3)研究地球系统中不同圈层之间生物地球化学循环的耦合及其影响。

解析和预测气候变化,一直是全球关注的热点科学问题之一。海洋生态系统和生物地球化学过程通过调控大气中温室气体和气溶胶浓度显著地影响着气候变化,系统地解析海洋生物地球化学过程和评估不同圈层间生物地球化学循环的动态耦合对准确地模拟和预测气候变化至关重要。王杉霖博士曾开展多项海洋碳循环及生态系统过程研究,例如,评估南大洋不同区域浮游植物的竞争机制、模拟过去几十年海气CO2通量的变化及其控制因素、估算人为源碳在海水中储量及分布。此外,王杉霖博士还对海洋与其他圈层间生物地球化学过程的耦合及其对气候的反馈开展了研究,包括海水与海冰间铁循环的耦合及其影响、海洋生源二甲基硫的估算及其对气溶胶、云和气候的影响,以及海洋浮游植物群落结构变化通过硫循环对气候变化的反馈。

Dr. Shanlin Wang joined the College of Ocean and Earth Sciences at Xiamen University and became a member of the State Key Laboratory of Marine Environmental Science in 2018. She is now a professor in chemical oceanography. Dr. Wang studied at the University of California, Irvine, under the guidance of Professor Jefferson Keith Moore. She received her doctoral degree in Earth System Science in 2011. In the same year, Dr. Wang received the highly competitive postdoctoral fellowship from the "Advanced Research Program" and conducted independent research at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. In addition, she was funded to teach as an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Texas at El Paso for one semester. Dr. Wang then moved to Los Alamos National Laboratory as a postdoctoral researcher in 2014 and was converted into a full-time staff scientist at the laboratory in 2015.

Dr. Wang has broad research interests in: (1) exploring the mechanisms controlling marine biogeochemical and ecological processes at high latitudes; (2) understanding responses and feedbacks of marine biogeochemical cycles onto climate change; and (3) investigating interactions of biogeochemical cycles among different components of the Earth System and their impacts.

Understanding and prejecting climate change have been one of the most important scientific issues in the world. Marine ecosystems and biogeochemical processes significantly affect climate change by regulating atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases and aerosols. Systematic analyses of ocean biogeochemical processes and the dynamic coupling of biogeochemical cycles between different components of the Earth are essential for accurate climate simulations. Dr. Shanlin Wang has carried out a number of studies on marine carbon cycle and ecosystem processes, such as understanding mechanisms controlling phytoplankton competition in different regions of the Southern Ocean, simulating changes in the air-sea CO2 fluxes over the past decades, and comparing various estimates of the anthropogenic carbon distribution in the global ocean. In addition, Dr. Wang has also investigated the biogeochemical coupling between the ocean and other components of the Earth system, including coupling of the iron cycle between sea water and sea ice, impacts of dimethyl sulfide originated from phytoplankton on the atmospheric aerosol burden, clouds and climate, and Impacts of shifts in phytoplankton community on clouds via the sulfur cycle.
