China's southernmost island city of Sansha inaugurated its first academician workstation on Friday, which will focus on marine meteorological monitoring and forecasting, disaster prevention and mitigation in the South China Sea.

The city mayor Deng Zhong said Sansha is home to a vast sea area, numerous islands, abundant resources and unique tropical marine climate, making for the best natural environment to carry out marine scientific research.

"We will combine the research advantages of atmosphere, ocean, biology, medicine and other disciplines to strive for new breakthroughs in marine research," said Dai Yongjiu, an academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences. The workstation was also named after Dai.

The oceanographic research and training vessel named after Sun Yat-sen University, and the national supercomputing center in Guangzhou will also provide support to the workstation, said Gao Song, president of Sun Yat-sen University.
