On 12th May 2022, initiated by A’an Johan Wahyudi and Jing Zhang (IMBeR National Contacts for Indonesia and China, respectively), an exploratory meeting between the BRIN biogeochemistry team and the SKLEC marine chemistry team was held online. On behalf of the host, IMBeR International Project Office – China (IPO-China), GiHoon Hong (IMBeR Strategy Director) welcomed all participants and emphasized the significance of collaborative scientific research among the IPR (Indo-Pacific Region) regional scientists. He also assured participants that the IPO-China provides necessary administrative support. Participants introduced their research interests, explored potential collaborative research, and discussed the BRIN upcoming research cruise about sampling strategies for seawater and sediments. Two sides agreed to hold an online workshop on research of the Central Indo-Pacific this June or July as a follow-up activity to this exploratory meeting. Both sides agreed to invite relevant early career researchers to the workshop.

IMBeR IPR (Indo-Pacific Region: marine biogeochemistry, biodiversity, sustainability) study group was originated by regional research scientists, as a fruit of the 2021 IMBeR West Pacific Symposium. The webpage is under construction, and please contact the IMBeR IPO-China (imber(at) for any query concerning membership or partnership.
