In October, the four-day 2nd Sino-German Symposium on Electromagnetic Geophysics was held in Qingdao to deepen the understanding between Chinese and German electromagnetic geophysics experts and to explore the possibilities for further cooperation. Chen Rui, Vice President of Ocean University of China (OUC) attended the opening ceremony and delivered the welcome speech.
Vice President Chen shared information about OUC’s achievements in international cooperation and scientific research. Dr. Sonntag, Director of the Geoscience Department at the German Research Foundation (DFG) and Prof. Spitzer, Co-Chair of the symposium and Director of the Research Institute of Geophysics and Geo-Information at University of Freiburg (Germany), delivered speeches. Prof. Li Yuguo, Chair of the symposium and a professor at OUC, moderated the event.
Participants delivered reports that covered multiple aspects of fundamental science, applied research, numerical simulation, geophysical inversion, and the research and development of equipment and facilities. This included the development of geothermal resources, the storage and sequestration of carbon dioxide, geological issues such as mountain formation and active continental margins, oil and natural gas exploration technology based on marine electromagnetics, and near-surface underground water and mineral resource exploration technology based on aerospace electromagnetics.
Present at the meeting were more than 90 participants from six German institutions (the University of Freiburg, the Free University of Berlin, Geothe University Frankfurt, the Helmholtz Center Potsdam at the GFZ German Research Center for Geosciences, the University of Cologne, the GEOMAR Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research Kiel) and PGS, a Norwegian company. In addition, 21 Chinese universities and research institutes were in attendance, including OUC, the Institute of Geology and Geophysics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Geology at the China Earthquake Administration, the Second Institute of Oceanography of the State Oceanic Administration, Peking University, the University of Science and Technology of China, the Central South University and Jilin University.
