About the webinar
Earthquake research and its imminent prediction are a hot topic in the world. Since 2000s, the specific satellites focusing on earthquake monitoring have been successfully launched such as DEMETER and CSES, which inspires new waves in seismo-ionospheric application research.
Combined with CSES, the stereo-earthquake monitoring system has been constructed in China. The main technologies will be introduced, including GNSS TEC, vertical and slant ionosonde, wide-frequency band electromagnetic, CSES satellite. Some earthquakes in China have been studied by using the multi parameters observed at ground and satellite. To understand the seismo-ionospheric coupling mechanism, the three key link channels are summarized with their simulations together, which consist of overlapped DC electric field, acoustic gravity wave, electromagnetic wave propagation models. How to fully used the multi observations at ground and space is suggested in future to further investigate the theoretical LAIC mechanism and earthquake prediction research.
About Prof. Xuemin ZHANG
Dr. Xuemin Zhang is a professor in Institute of Earthquake Forecasting, China Earthquake Administration. She mainly focuses on satellite data processing and its application in earthquake research, radio wave propagation and ionospheric heating mechanism, stereo earthquake monitoring system construction and lithosphere-atmosphere-ionosphere coupling mechanism study. She is the Deputy Chief Designer of the ground application system of CSES (China Seismo-Electromagnetic Satellite, launched in 2018) and responsible for the data processing system. With her team together, a satellite earthquake monitoring and application system has been developed based on CSES, and it has been used in actual imminent earthquake prediction.
She collaborates with many national and international research teams, as IZMIRAN (Pushkov Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere, and Radiowave Propagation, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia), DEMETER satellite center (Orleans, France), INFN(National Institute for Nuclear Physics, Perugia, Italy) as visiting scholar, etc. for international cooperation in satellite payload design as electric field detector and high energetic particle detector, and satellite data processing. She has been the PI in a few international projects between China and Italy, APSCO, ISSI-BJ in 2014.
