Seismic wave propagation using numerical modeling

Seismic full-waveform tomography

Seismic attenuation

Active tectonics such as oceanic faults and the Tibetan Plateau

Nuclear explosion monitoring


Fundamentals of inverse theory in geophysics (for undergraduate)

This course is aimed to assisting students to understand the principle concepts of inverse theory in geophysics. It will introduce the fundamental theory and applications of linear inverse problem, and typical methods and problems of non-linear inverse problem.

Geophysical inverse problem (for graduate students)

This course is specialized for students in geophysics and related areas. Upon completing the course, students are expected to (1) understand the concept, philosophy, and methodology of the geophysical inverse problem, (2) establish, solve, and analyze basic geophysical inversion problem (e.g., earthquake location, seismic tomography, gravity inversion, etc.), and comprehend and assess the recent studies on the theory or applications of geophysical inverse problem.

Join us

The Department of Earth and Space Sciences (ESS) at Southern University of Science and Technology was established in December 2016. Prof. Xiaofei Chen, a renowned seismologist and an academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), is appointed as an initiatory departmental head. 
The studies in ESS concern the physics of the Earth, geo-space and planets in outer space. Through building up a world-leading program of research and education in Earth and Space Sciences, we strive to conduct the research that would advance our understanding on the complex natural system of Earth and Space, in order to provide science-based solutions to many of the societal challenges of our time: natural hazards, natural energy resources, space exploration, etc. In the meantime, our department offers rigorous hands-on training to students and prepares them to be future leaders in academia, government and industry. 
ESS encompasses a wide range of scientific disciplines: Geophysics, Space Physics, Satellite Geodesy and Planetary Science. By the end of October 2019, ESS has thirty-one faculty members, including six professors, four associate professors, eleven assistant professors, and ten research assistant professors, including one Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences, three Distinguished Young Scholars of National Nature Science Fund, one Excellent Young Scientists of National Science Fund. elcome more talents to join us and work together to build a world-class research and education center for Earth and Space Sciences.
