Pearl River Estuary Pollution Project (PREPP)

The Pearl River Delta region, as part of the South China Sea, has experienced tremendous growth in the past few decades.  The increased social and economic activities have brought about serious deterioration of the water quality due to pollutants discharged into the Pearl River estuary system. The Hong Kong Jockey Club has awarded HK$18,000,000 study under the Chief Executive Community project for CCAR to conduct scientific investigation of pollution in the Pearl River Estuary.

 

The objective of the Pearl River Estuary Pollution Project (PREPP) is to use a combination of traditional and new technologies to gain a solid understanding of the status of selected toxic pollutants, sediment, phytoplankton and nutrient levels in the Pearl River Estuary. Given the dramatic growth of industry and population in the area, this information is urgently needed to ensure that government pollution monitoring and control strategies are in line.

Pearl River Estuary Integrated Observation System (PEIOS)
珠江河口海洋环境立体监测综合技术示范试验


本课题的总体目标是参照国际先进的近岸海洋环境立体监测系统的技术框架,研制一个以海水质量监测为核心,以珠江口为研究区域,应用先进监测技术和信息传输技术的高度自动化、系统化的环境监测示范区。

课题的核心内容包括:  

1. 珠江口地区监测网络总体设计及信息系统集成的研究
2.
岸基海洋环境监测平台的研制与应用(水质自动采样分析、发报系统,高频地波雷达的引进及其在海洋表面流场研究方面的应用技)
3. 船载水质自动监测平台研制
4. 应用卫星遥感技术建立空基海洋环境监测平台
5. 100m/s风速仪的自动化气象监测系统的研制。
 

参照国际先进的近岸海洋环境立体监测系统,研制一个以海水质量监测为核心,以珠江口和比邻海域为区域,应用先进监测技术和信息传输技术的高度系统化、自动化的海洋环境监测示范区。该示范系统从信息源的采集、传输、信息源的加工处理到信息产品的发布将是一个完整的网络结构

该系统的建立很大程度上将以香港科技大学、中山大学现有先进设备、自动气象预报系统和信息处理技术为基础、以香港科大、中大、广东地方政府在经费上和人力物力上的大力支持为支柱、以海洋 863 资助为支持,研制、引进、开发各种海洋环境自动监测平台、数据处理、信息集成、传输关键技术。该系统除在技术和数据质量上可以进入 GTS GOOS 之外,其信息产品应能通过电子媒介系统 (InternetHomepage) 提供给国家和地方政府,为珠江口地区的海洋环境监测、保护和经济建设服务。
