Invited by State Key Laboratory of Geodesy and Earth`s Dynamics (SKLGED), researcher Wang Kelin from Geological Survey of Canada visited Institute of Geodesy and Geophysics (IGG) and gave an academic report “Applications of seafloor geodesy in plate boundary geodynamics” on April 18.
During the report, Wang Kelin introduced the development of seafloor geodesy and applications of seafloor geodesy in plate boundary geodynamics. Taking an example for 2007 earthquake in Japan, he gave a breakthrough in understanding the coseismic and postseismic research of the exceptionally large thrust earthquakes.
Dr. Wang Kelin is a senior research scientist from Geological Survey of Canada. Most of his current research is on geodynamics of subduction zones and related earthquake and tsunami hazards, but he has also worked on arrange of other topics regarding the thermal, mechanical, and hydrogeological processes of earth’s lithosphere.
