MLR Key Laboratory of Neotectonic Movement and Geohazard

[ 05-06-2015 ]

Supported by the Institute of Geomechanics, CAGS, this laboratory focuses on the following research directions: neotectonics, seismic geology, engineering geological effect of mobile faults, formation and evolution of catastrophic geological hazards brought about by coupling of endodynamic and exodynamic processes, theories and methods for the prediction and evaluation of severe geological hazards and establishment of the technical exchange platform and research base of active structure and mitigation and prevention of geological hazards, so as to propose policy-making information and technical support to the national strategy for mitigating and alleviating natural disasters.

In 2013, 71 research papers were published, including 19 papers indexed by SCI, 7 indexed by EI, 28 in China’s core journals, 10 in science and technology core journals. Three monographs were published. The lab received two invention patents of China and one national patent for utility models.
