Chin-Chang Hung’s research is to develop a better understanding of the oceanic carbon cycle which was affected from burning fossil fuels. In addition, he has been studying the carbon dioxide impacts of climate change, such as global warming, ocean acidification, eutrophication and typhoons. The ocean "solubility pump" affects the "biological pump", nutrient dynamics, plankton community composition and carbon export flux in the ocean. Through a combination of field studies and experiments, the impacts of climate change can be explore by scientific analysis. He currently also works on application of smart aquaculture technology, such as hydrographic sensors and underwater video system to monitor the behavior of marine plankton and shrimp, as well as aquatic environment management.
