Director, Center for Global Tectonics

China University of Geosciences, Wuhan
2014.9  

The mission of the CUGW Center for Global Tectonics is to provide a world-class research and educational environment that examines the interaction of the lithosphere, asthenosphere, deep Earth, and how plate tectonic motions and history determines the locations and size of significant Earth Resources. The center boasts a number of world-class researchers in plate tectonics, geophysics, seismology, crustal evolution, mineral deposits, geothermal resources, ground water resources, GIS and remote sensing, and geologic hazards, and more than 40 collaborating international institutions. The center bridges traditional gaps between disciplines and provides an environment for students and researchers to develop projects using integrated global and regional GIS databases, field studies, and models.
