About the Lecturer:
WANG Chengshan, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Professor of the School of Earth Science and Resources of China University of Geosciences (Beijing), Director of the Research Centre for Tibetan Plateau Geology of China University of Geosciences (Beijing), and Chief Scientist of the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP) of Cretaceous Songliao Basin. His main research field is sedimentology, and he has achieved systematic and innovative achievements in the Cretaceous paleoenvironment and paleoclimate, tectonic uplift and sedimentary response, and oil-bearing basin analysis, which have been influential in the field of geology at home and abroad. In recent years, he has jointly launched the “Deep-time Digital Earth (DDE)” with many academicians globally and served as the Chief Scientist of the Chinese side. At present, the plan is being actively promoted.
About the LectureContent:
The “Deep-time Digital Earth (DDE)” will rebuild the evolution of life, geography, matter, and climate on the Earth driven by big data, to accurately rebuild the evolutionary history of the Earth and life, and identify the macroscopic distribution patterns of global mineral resources and energy. Through this program, millions of researchers and professional users of science and technology around the world will be provided with a virtual research environment that spans scientific fields and countries, enabling them to store, share and use research data. DDE will carry out major scientific research, build the largest geoscientific basic database, and establish a “Geoscientific Google” to integrate global data on the evolution of the Earth and share global geoscientific knowledge.
Date and Time: 15:00-17:00Tuesday, September 8,2020 (Beijing Time)
