Invited by the School of Computing and Engineering of the University of Ulster of UK, Professor Zhao Guoze of the Institute of Geology, CEA visited the University of Ulsterin late 2016 for the academic exchanges. During his visit, Zhao made a special report. He introduced the Controlled Source Extremely Low Frequency (CSELF) method, its generation and development and its physical basis. The report shows the features and advantages in earthquake monitoring and prediction using CSELF method. He also introduced the construction of the first CSELF observation network in china and the preliminary research result by using observation data obtained by CSELF network. The report attracted the interest of attended professors, teachers and students there.

Zhao also visited the “Family Intelligence” lab, which is one of the frontier research project implemented by experts in School of Computer and Mathematics and has been operating continuously for 10 years. The principal investigator of laboratory introduced the equipments, observation, the data processing and analysis methods using the “big data” technique. The experiment purpose of the laboratory is to study the temporal and spatial activity regulation of the family members.  Besides, Zhao also discussed with the experts from the Computer Science Research Institute and School of Computer and Mathematics about how to use advanced mathematical processing and analysis methods to quickly and efficiently identify and extract anomaly information relative to earthquake etc.

As the Chinese principal investigator of the project in the Dragon III and Dragon Ⅳ cooperation program, which is a cooperation project between China's Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and Europe Space Agency (ESA), Zhao communicated in detail with Doctor Bi Yaxin, the European principal investigator from the University of Ulster and the colleagues. They summarized and sort outthe new achievements of the projects and discussed the further study and cooperation plan based on the data observed by using satellite and ground-based CSELF method. The preliminary study results show the possible relationship between electromagnetic anomalous and earthquake activity and provides the new examples and evidences on these relationship. They suggest that to carry out the stereo monitoring consisted of ground-based and satellite-based electromagnetic observation and big data analysis is the development direction for earthquake monitoring.

The both sides of the project in Dragon IV (2017-2020) agree to strengthen the exchange and cooperation in earthquake prediction study and the relative study fields including the personnel exchangeand so on.
