2016/12/29 15:03:59

In order to implement the requirements of the “Opinions on Work Arrangement of  National Seismic Situation Tracing in 2016”, IGL is responsible to lead and organize national seismic macro-situation tracing - thermal infrared remote sensing discipline. According to the work need of seismic situation, CEA Institute of Geology under the entrustment of CEA Monitoring and Forecasting Department held a seminar for consultation of thermal infrared remote sensing of earthquakes in Beijing on September 23~24, 2016. Deputy Division Chief Zhang Langping from CEA Monitoring and Forecasting Department and Researcher Shan Xinjian – Deputy Director of IGL were present at the meeting. More than 20 experts and young scientific researchers from Northeastern University, China University of Petroleum (East China), Nanyang Normal University, Gansu Earthquake Administration, Sichuan Earthquake Administration, Xinjiang Earthquake Administration, Guangdong Earthquake Administration, China Earthquake Networks Center, CEA Institute of Earthquake Science and other organizations attended the meeting.  Division Chief Jiang Hanchao from the Institute of Geology presided over the meeting.

The meeting carried out exchange and discussion in five aspects: research method of thermal infrared remote sensing of earthquakes, exception and index construction, application of thermal infrared remote sensing in previous earthquake cases, efficiency inspection of thermal infrared remote sensing in the aspect of earthquake prediction and forecasting, sharable data resources of thermal infrared remote sensing, and other problems during research of thermal infrared remote sensing discipline, and preliminarily formed a consensus. The content of the meeting was rich, people spoke with enthusiasm and the discussion of problems was intensive, providing technical support for smooth development of thermal infrared remote sensing of earthquakes.
