Invited by State Key Laboratory of Geodesy and Earth’s Dynamics (SKLGED), professor Liu Mian from University of Missouri, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences visited Institute of Geodesy and Geophysics(IGG) and gave two academics report on title “Intraplate earthquakes: spatiotemporal patterns and implications for hazards” and “50 years after plate tectonics: from kinematics to dynamics” on July 10.
In the first report, professor Liu introduced the current earthquake disaster prediction and evaluation method. He combined with actual data and numerical simulation to point out its shortcomings in spatial distribution prediction. By analyzing the earthquake sequences in different regions, the "devil" contained in it was pointed out. The ladder features and introduces the mathematical physics concepts it contains. In his second report, professor Liu reviewed the development of the theory of plate tectonics and pointed out the important role of geodesy and multidisciplinary intersection. The report was rich in content and there was a good interaction between professor Liu and the participants. After the meeting, relevant researchers introduced the recent scientific research work and conducted in-depth exchanges with them.
Professor Liu Mian is currently a professor of geology at the University of Missouri. He graduated from the Department of Geology of Nanjing University in 1982. He obtained a master's degree in geology from MeGill University in Canada in 1985 and obtained a geophysics doctor degree from the University of Arizona in 1989. His research involves continental deformation, seismic and active structures, mantle dynamics, magma and metamorphism.
