Introduction
The Predecessor of School of Marine Science in Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology (NUIST) is the major of School of Atmospheric Sciences---Marine Science.  The formation of the Program in Oceanography in 2003 marks the University’s first effort to provide a formal advanced education in Marine Sciences. Since then it has evolved through several phases: in the same year, it began to admit undergraduate students; in 2006, it was granted the right by the Ministry of Education to award the degree of Bachelor of Science; soon after it was identified by the University as a key discipline. In 2008, it became a key program under the auspices of China Meteorological Administration. In January 2012, it was formally transitioned into a school. So far the School has 25 members on the faculty; among them there are one Jiangsu Chair Professor and nine Professors in a variety of fields. Besides, seven renowned international scholars have joined the school as guest professors. Statistically, over 50% of the faculty members have educational backgrounds or work experience in Western countries; more than one third have been awarded with different teaching prizes. The School has an active academic atmosphere, with a variety of leading research programs. Their current foci are mainly on air-sea interaction, ocean modeling and data assimilation, remote sensing, fundamental geophysical fluid dynamics, marine meteorology. Besides, the school possesses five professional teaching laboratories: Basic Fluid Mechanics Laboratory, Storm Flow Sink Laboratory, Computational Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, Marine Biochemical Laboratory and Planetary Fluid Dynamics Laboratory. Furthermore, School of Marine Science co-constructed 8 teaching and research training bases and innovation bases with national marine-related institutions.
