Research vessel-XIANG YANG HONG 03 is on a visit to undertake China – Sri Lanka joint cruise in the Northern Indian Ocean. The Joint Investigation is intended
to study water exchange between Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal via the southern tip of Sri Lanka. The water exchange plays an important role on the regional climate
change through redistribution of both salt and heat in the northern Indian Ocean, but also has significant impacts on the regional marine ecological environment.
