On July 25, 2013, the four emergency response team members of the Institute of Geology joining Gansu Minxian-Zhangxian Ms 6.6 earthquake field work group, including Min Wei, Zheng Wenjun, Ren Zhikun and Xu Chong smoothly completed disaster investigation, scientific research and other work and returned to Beijing.

In this work for emergency response to Minxian-Zhangxian earthquake, the Institute of Geology sent ten people forth to the disaster-stricken area. The emergency response team members of the field work group worked hard, risked their lives against aftershocks, went to the disaster-stricken area and carefully studied seismogenic structure, earthquake hazards and earthquake intensity.

At present, emergency response expert and researcher Li Zhiqiang from the Institute of Geology still stays on the site, and the five people of the electromagnetic sounding group are continuing their observation in the earthquake region.
