To honor the merits and achievements of distinguished scientist Professor Li Shanbang in seismological exploration and the development of modern earthquake science in China, and to encourage young technologists in the field of earthquake science, the Seismological Society of China established the “Li Shanbang Young Excellent Seismological Science and Technology Paper” award. Its purpose is to reward young science and technology workers who have made outstanding achievements in the field of earthquake science.

Recently, the Seismological Society of China announced the winners of the 10th “Li Shanbang Young Excellent Seismological Science and Technology Paper” award, three of which were from the Institute of Geology of the China Earthquake Administration. Associate research fellow Yao Lu won joint second prize, and Xu Chong and Zhang Guohong were awarded joint third prize. Congratulations!

This honor fully confirms the significant efforts of several young colleagues at our institute in the work of earthquake science. It is hoped that these awards will encourage all the young technologists at our institute to remain true to the mission, and to continue Professor Li Shanbang’s rigorous academic attitude and brave spirit of innovation. All members of the institute should devote their continued efforts to further scientific research, and to forge ahead with determination in making new and greater contributions to earthquake science and technology innovation that could contribute to the prevention and mitigation of earthquake disasters.
