China-Pakistan Training Workshop on Earthquake Monitoring and Prevention Technology
Time: August 28 - September 2, 2022
Offline (Beijing) and Online (VooV Meeting: 818-8959-3623)
The construction of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (aka., CPEC) is the demonstration and flagship project of the Belt and Road Initiative. It aims to strengthen and enhance the all-weather strategic cooperative partnership between China and Pakistan, which not only has a strong role in promoting the development of China and Pakistan, but also optimizes Pakistan’s regional dominance in South Asia. However, CPEC has the characteristics of active geological structures and frequent earthquakes because it passes through the western margin of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and through the intersection of the three major mountains, the Himalayas, Karakoram and Hindu Kush. In recent years, Pakistan has experienced many earthquakes with extremely severe disasters: for example, in 2005, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.6 occurred in the Hindu Kush region of northern Pakistan, killing about 80,000 people; in 2011, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.4 occurred in southern Pakistan; in 2013, two earthquakes with a magnitude of 7.7 occurred, killing more than 800 people; in 2015, another earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 occurred again in the Hindu Kush region of northern Pakistan.
China and Pakistan have a lot of cooperation in the fields of earthquake prevention and disaster mitigation technology such as earthquake monitoring and data analysis. In 2019, Institute of Geophysics, China Earthquake Administration (aka., CEA-IGP), the co-construction unit of China-Pakistan Joint Research Center on Earth Sciences (aka., CPJRC), reached a cooperation agreement with Pakistan Meteorological Agency on the Pakistan Earthquake Monitoring Network Phase II construction. More efforts will be given to update the earthquake network in Pakistan and build a basic database of earthquake disasters.
In order to better promote the construction of Pakistan’s earthquake network, promote the popularization of earthquake prevention and disaster reduction technology, and the application of earthquake monitoring, prevention and disaster reduction technology in Pakistan, CPJRC and CEA-IGP jointly work to hold this China-Pakistan Training Workshop on Earthquake Monitoring and Prevention Technology, in Beijing, from August 28 to September 2, 2022.
II Who Should Attend
This training workshop is intended for postgraduate students, whose research field is geophysics, geohazards, geological exploration or the others relating to seismic monitoring and early warning.
III Benefit for Attendees
This training workshop will give participants an introduction of seismic monitoring and early warning, and have a full picture of prevention technology. Also, the attendees will get a certificate from China-Pakistan Joint Research Centre on Earth Science for this course.
All the registration, accommodation and meals fees are FREE. (Note: 2 people in one standard room. The transportation fees are not included.)
