In order to further improve the competence of postgraduates and young scientists and engineers of CEA Institute of Geology  in scientific research, and promote geophysical inversion algorithm, deformation field numerical simulation theory and application level to get in line with the international level, State Key Laboratory of Earthquake Dynamics invited Professor Wang Rongjiang of Helmholtz-Centre Potsdam - German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ)  to China to open “Modeling of Co- and Post-seismic Deformation  Theory and Tools” doctorate course on May 13~19, 2016.

Professor Wang Rongjiang is an internationally renowned expert at geophysical inversion and numerical simulation of crustal deformation. The deformation field inversion project of his institute is widely applied and accepted by numerous researchers in the international community of geosciences. Professor Wang Rongjiang is a visiting professor of State Key Laboratory of Earthquake Dynamics. For many years, he has maintained a good relation of cooperative research with State Key Laboratory of Earthquake Dynamics. This time, he came to China to give lessons again two years later. He not only deepened the understanding of postgraduates and young scholars attending his lessons on the establishment of theoretical models of coseismic and post-earthquake deformation field but also provided concrete guidance and analysis for them in the aspect of software use and application of concrete earthquake cases. Meanwhile, teacher Wang elaborated “earthquake early warning”, this international frontier research topic. The students attending the lessons all expressed they benefited a lot from the lessons and the lessons have significantly broadened their research horizon and ability in geophysical inversion. The arrangement of a postgraduate course this time is also one of the important contents of substantive cooperation and exchange of State Key Laboratory of Earthquake Dynamics.
