Wu Lixin, Chen Zhaohui. Progresses and Challenges in Observational Studies of Physical Oceanography[J]. Advances in Earth Science, 2013, 28(5): 542-551.

From the frontier scientific problems that the physical oceanography is currently confronting, the progresses and challenges in observational studies of physical oceanography are discussed with special focus on the boundary current systems, turbulence, diapycnal mixing, ocean heat content and fresh water balance. The targeted development scenarios are proposed with regard to the deep ocean research, especially to the observational physical oceanography of our country.
