U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) oceanographer Jingping Xu was recently selected as a 2005-09 member of the Academic Committee of the Ministry of Education's Key Laboratory for Coast and Island Development, Nanjing University, China. Committee members provide advice for the future development of the laboratory and associated research priorities. Jingping has also been appointed as a joint supervisor in the laboratory's graduate program.

Jingping's professional interests include sediment transport, boundary-layer dynamics, and submarine-canyon processes. He is currently involved in studies of sediment transport on the Palos Verdes shelf, turbidity currents in Monterey Canyon, and circulation in the San Gabriel River estuary (all on the California coast).
