Research Interests

The Division focuses on the formation of the geoenviroment of the East Asia and its evolution on different time scales as well as the dynamic relationship with the global changes since the Quaternary time based on terrestrial records, the evolution of the human and other life forms as well as their relationship with and the impact on the environment, and researches on the neotectonics and environmental changes induced geohazards in geohazard-prone areas.  The Division applies remote-sensing technology to establish a series of monitoring and evaluation systems on geoengineering, environmental geology, geohazards, and neotectonics using advanced data processing and extraction techniques developed at home and abroad.  The Paleomagnetic method is utilized for reconstruction of paleoenvironment, paleogeography, and paleocontinents as well as studies on stratigraphic magnetic chronology since Phanerozoic.
