The aeolianite deposits on Shidao Island of the Xisha Islands, the South China Sea, contain five stages of aeolian biocalcarenites and four paleosols.

Key Laboratory of Marine Geology and. Yongxing Island is a coral reef island formed by the growth and accumulation of corals and other skeletal fragments on a reef platform. The reef flat is developed around the entire island.

Seasonal wind patterns influence the configuration and geomorphology of insular reef systems: Yongxing Island, Xisha Islands, China.

Jian‐Wei Shen. Field measurements of air-sea CO2 exchange in three coral reef areas of the South China Sea (i.e. the Yongshu Reef atoll of the Nansha Islands, southern South China Sea (SCS); Yongxing Island of Xisha Islands, north-central SCS; and Luhuitou Fringing Reef in Sanya of Hainan Island, northern SCS) during the summers of and revealed that both air and surface seawater partial pressures.

N, °20' E), located east of Xisha Islands of SCS, is an elliptical tropical reef island with an area of km2. Meteorological observations (air temperature, precipitation) in Shidao Island have been made since by the Institute of Meteorology of China.

Microbes and microbial carbonates in reef-flat and coral community dynamics and submarine geomorphologic features in reef crest and fore reef of Yongxing Island, the Xisha Islands, South China. The Xisha Islands, located in the northwest of the South China Sea (°–°E, 15°30′–17°0′N; Fig.

1), is made up of three compound atolls, five single atolls and two table reefs (Zhang et al. ).Among the compound atolls, Yongle Atoll (°34′–°47′E, 16°25′–16°36′N) consists of seven small islands or single atolls surrounding a lagoon about 20 km long and The impacts of microplastics on coral reefs are gaining attention due to findings that microplastics affect coral health.

This work investigated the distribution and characteristics of microplastics in the seawater, fish, and corals in 3 atolls from the Xisha Islands of South China Sea. In the seawater samples, microplastics were detected in the outer reef slopes, reef flats, and lagoons with.

The Petrography of studied section of the core was dominated by reef carbonate limestones. Using P/Ca ratios in the aragonite layer of Porites lutea coral, we found that there was an abnormal increase in P concentrations in surface seawater surrounding Yongxing Island, of the Xisha Islands of the South China Sea, in the s.

We inferred that this phenomenon was related to the government's exploitation of guano. Halimeda is one of the major reef-building algas in the middle Miocene of Xisha, and one of the significant reef-building algas in the algal reef oil and gas field of the South China Sea.

However, there have been few reports regarding the characteristics of mineral rocks, reservoir porosity and permeability layers, and sedimentation-diagenetic-evolution of fossil Halimeda systems. Xisha Islands are in the central South China Sea and form one of the four large island groups in this region.

They include more than 40 islands, reefs and cays, and have considerable ecological and biodiversity value, both intrinsically and as a source of larvae for coastal ecosystems throughout the South China Sea. Yongle atoll is the biggest and one of the most important atolls in the Xisha.

The Xisha Islands (Fig. 1A, B), also known as the Paracel Islands, are located in the northwest part of the South China Sea and en-compass>40 islands and reefs. The Xisha Platform on which these islands are located is surrounded by basins and/or depressions with ocean waters that are>m deep (Wu et al., ).

The monitoring of the coral reef ecosystem in six bodies of water, including the Xuande Islands and Yongle Islands, located in the Xisha Islands, was included. The report said there are 49 species of corals in the waters and the coral reefs there are relatively rich in fish resources, with an average density of fish per hundred square meters.

Xisha Islands Xisha Islands have many reefs, eight atolls, and 1 platform reef, one reef beach, the dry out atoll reef body area of square kilometers, including reef flat area of square kilometers, the lagoon area of square kilometers.

Atoll reef and platform reef on the development of the grey sand island are with a total of 28, moreover there is a high volcanic breccia. Monitoring coral reef ecosystems on the main islands of Xisha Islands from to showed that the cycle of Acanthaster planci outbreaks in Xisha Islands is about 15 years.

These 15 years can be divided into two phases, in which the period of A. planci outbreak is about 5 years, and the recovery period of coral reefs is about 10 years.

To solve the above issue, Well CK2 was drilled in on Chenhang Island of the Xisha Islands from an altitude of +m to a bottom depth of −m (Fig. Yongxing island is the largest of the Xisha islands in the South China Sea which is also the seat of the Sansha city government established by China’s Hainan province.

With a three-kilometer runway, the airport in Yongxing island is an important dual-use airport in the South China. China was the first to have discovered the islands in the South China Sea.

In this study, we collected 21 coral reef fish species from the Xisha and Nansha Islands in the SCS to investigate the occurrence of 16 US-EPA PAHs.

The total PAH concentrations (ΣPAH) in the collected fish ranged from to ng/g dry weight (dw, Xisha Islands) and from to ng/g dw (Nansha Islands), respectively. This committee examined and approved the names of the islands in the South China Sea, all of which belong to Xisha, Zhongsha and Nansha Islands.

France raised first official claim to the Paracel and Spratly Islands after invaded and occupied 9 of Nansha Islands. Halimeda is an important reef-building green alga.

Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy spectrum tests on green and white Halimeda collected from Shidao Island in the Xisha Islands show that carbonate is predominantly deposited in the cortexes and medullas, especially in the aragonite raphides of them, as the case of calcium carbonate.

China has occupied some of those islands. InChina enforced its claim upon the Paracel Islands by seizing them from Vietnam. China refers to the Paracel Islands as the Xisha Islands, and includes them as part of its Hainan Island province.

Long term phosphate (2 µM) and nitrogen (20 µM urea + ammonium) enrichment of a patch reef at One Tree Island, Great Barrier Reef, caused >50% suppression of reef calcification.

This is attributed primarily to the phosphate. It is suggested that this effect is involved, together with algal competition and the more usually accepted depression of temperature, in reducing the growth rate of.

Dongdao Island (16°39'~16°41'N, °43'~°45'E), one of the Xisha Islands in the South China Sea (Figure 1), is a tropical reef island with a land area of km 2 and an elevation of 3–6 m.

The island has only small military outposts and no civilian residents (Figure 1). On Ap China’s State Council announced its approval of setting up two new municipal districts as dependencies of the southernmost Sansha city, in Hainan province.

The new “Xisha District” and “Nansha District” cover the South China Sea. China’s institutions on the Fiery Cross Reef (Yongshu Reef) will be in charge of the administration of the islands, reefs, and sea areas of.
