On April 25 and 26 2017, the project group of"Active tectonics and prediction of seismic hazard in the Shanxi fault-depression basin " held a field an advisory meeting in Datong, Shanxi Province. During the meeting, the recent work and progress of this project were presented and discussed. The participants include the Researcher Zhang Shimin from the Institute of Crustal Dynamics, China Earthquake Administration, Director Li Zihong, Director Li Dongmei and Senior-Engineer Yan Xiaobing from Shanxi Earthquake Agency, Researchers Xu Jiandong, Chen Jie, Jiang Hanzhao, Yang Xiaoping, and Ran Hongliu, and Associate Researcher Tan Xibin, Researcher He Honglin and other members form the Institute of Geology, China Earthquake Administration.

  The panel debriefed the progress of this project and the technical difficulties of the field work, which were reported by the members of the project team, investigated the fault section and the tectonic geomorphology characteristics of the western Liulengshanbeilu fault, discussed and analyzed in detail the paleoseismic events reflected by the two typical fault sections and related technical problems, and affirmed the work done by the project team. In addition, the formation mechanism and distribution of the planation surface were also discussed. The panel gave some feasible solutions to the related technical difficult issues, guided the implementation of the work, and put forward some constructive suggestions for the next work plan.
