2014/5/18 21:15:43

Division of Active Volcanoes is an academic institution for studies on active volcanoes. Based on Research Center of Active Volcanoes of China Earthquake Administration and the National Field Scientific Observation and Research Station on the volcano at the Changbaishan Mountains in Jilin Province, this division conducts studies on the distribution, scale, eruption history, contributing factors, volcanic resources and calamity, etc of active volcanoes in the Chinese mainland upon the modern volcanology and multidisciplinary integration, including tectonics, chronology, geochemistry and geophysics. The purpose is to explore tectonic structure and dynamics of volcanic activity, so as to provide technical support for the monitoring and study of active volcanoes in the Chinese mainland, the prediction of volcanic eruption and reduction of volcanic disasters.
