Hu, Xinping Professor


I am the Endowed Chair for Ecosystem Science and Modeling at Harte Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies and a Professor in the Department of Physical & Environmental Sciences at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.

Our research focuses on understanding the dynamics of estuarine and ocean acidification and the controlling factors, in an effort to understand its impact on marine organisms. We employ a multitude of techniques, including in situ and shipboard observations, as well as statistical and numerical modeling to unravel the linkages between the changes in the water and the factors that are behind. Our research aims to provide most up-to-date information to stakeholders that include coastal communities, fishing and aquaculture industries, and state and federal agencies for management purposes.
