On April 6, 2016, Ma Shengli, the Director of the Institute of Geology and Tao Yulu, the Director-General of Earthquake Administration of Hainan Province signed a science and technology cooperation agreementon the principle of “complementation of each other’s advantages, sharing of resources, stress on practical effect, and synergetic development”. The Institute of Geology will give play to its research advantage in professional basic theories and applications. Earthquake Administration of Hainan Province will give play to its technical advantage in regional environmental features and observation. The two parties will carry out exchange and close cooperation in seismic science and technology, focus on the work fields of Qiongshan M7.5 earthquake in 1605, volcanoes in northern Hainan, and seimotectonics in South China Sea, generate more and innovative scientific research results through cooperative research of projects (tasks), observation, experiment and mutual exchange and learning, and boost the capability of Hainan in seismic science and technology.

The ceremony was presided over by Shen Fanluan, the Deputy Director-General of Earthquake Administration of Hainan Province. Director-General Tao Yulu, Deputy Director-General Chen Ding, people from management departments and relevant scientific research personnel attended the signing ceremony. Director-General Tao Yulu introduced the current development status of seismic science and technology of Earthquake Administration of Hainan Province, problems in the future, and some ideas about S&T cooperation with the Institute of Geology and hoped the S&T cooperation could promote the S&T development of Earthquake Administration of Hainan Province. Researcher Zheng Wenjun, the Director of S&T Development Department of the Institute of Geology, researcher He Honglin, the Director of the Active Tectonics Research Room, researcher Xu Jiandong, the Director of Active Volcano Research Room, and researcher Xiao Qibin from Solid Geophysics and Deep Tectonics Research Room attended the signing ceremony.

After the signing ceremony, the scientific research personnel of the two sides carried out academic exchange. Director Ma Shengli introduced in details the general situation and basic scientific research of the Institute of Geology so that the scientific researchers of Earthquake Administration of Hainan Province had better understanding on the Institute of Geology and selected appropriate cooperative directions and experts. Researcher He Honglin from the Institute of Geology made an academic report titled “Is it possible to have destructive tsunami in southeastern coast of China”, researcher Xu Jiandong made an academic report titled “Overview of Volcano Monitoring in China and Volcanoes in Northern Hainan”, researcher Xiao Qibin made an academic report titled “Magnetotelluric Sounding and Its Application in Deep Tectonics”, senior engineer Hu Jiuchang from Earthquake Administration of Hainan Provinceintroduced the current research status of volcanoes in northern Hainan, and scientific research personnel of the two sides discussed the scientific issues in common interest and research directions. After the meeting, the people from the two sides visited volcanoes in northern Hainan and Qingzhong Seismic Station and discussed and exchanged ideas on possible cooperative matters.
