Outline
The State Key Laboratory of Earth Surface Processes and Resource Ecology (Beijing Normal University) is an applied geology and ecology research laboratory.

The State Key Laboratory of Earth Surface Processes and Resource Ecology of BNU focuses on studying the semi-arid grassland and the transitional zone between the pastoral and agricultural areas in northern China and the coastal areas. It deems sustainable ecosystem management and restoration of degraded ecosystems as the overall target while it strives to advance resource ecology research and dynamic modeling of ecosystems at multiple scales. The Laboratory conducts experiments and studies by integrating multiple disciplines to explore the geographical processes and the rational use of renewable natural resources. To date, it has established four major research themes including earth surface processes, resource ecology, earth surface system modeling and simulation, and sustainable regional development modeling. The goal is to provide technical support for the prevention and control of land degradation and restoration of degraded ecosystems in ecologically fragile regions. The objective also is to build the Laboratory into a research center and education base that specializes in earth surface processes and resource ecology, with important international influence and status. The Laboratory is headed by Professor Peijun Shi. The Director of the Academic Committee is Academician Zhisheng An.

YEAR_1957. Renamed as Beijing Observatory, and obtained earthquake waveform data since June.1, 1957, with the installed 513-type mid-strong seismometer. The geomagnetism records was first obtained in 1957.

YEAR_1982. A 202m-depth cave for geophysical observation was completed with total inner length of 317.5m.

Year_1982 to Year_2010. Seismometers, a gravimeter, and tilt-meters were installed in the cave, while geo-magnetometers and instruments for water level were installed in the yard and down in boreholes.

YEAR_1984. Be awarded the "International Earth Observation Centenary" Silver Medal by IAGA in recognition of the outstanding contribution in Geomagnetic Observation.

Geo-environment Protection(SKLGP)
Chengdu University of Technology

Cheng Du of Sichuan Province
P. R. China

Outline
The State Key Laboratory of Geohazard Prevention and Geoenvironment Protection (SKLGP) is located in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, Southwest China. With dozens of years of history, in 1989 it was approved as a state professional laboratory by the State Development Planning Commission and the State Education Commission, established for the state key discipline "Geological Engineering" in Chengdu University of Technology (originally Chengdu College of Geology).

It was recognized as the Key Laboratory of Sichuan Province by the local government in 2001. And one year later, it was developed as the State Key Laboratory Base, which was under the joint construction of Ministry of Science and Technology and Sichuan Province. In 2003, it became Key Laboratory of the Ministry of Land and Resources. Upgraded to a State Key Laboratory by the Ministry of Science and Technology in 2007, SKLGP now is an exclusive laboratory in the field of geohazard prevention in China. The present director of SKLGP academic committee is Academician Wang Sijing from Chinese Academy of Engineering, and Professor Huang Runqiu is in charge of the laboratory.

Targeted at the applied basic research of geohazard prevention and geoenvironment protection, SKLGP provides theories and technologies for natural disaster prevention and the state major projects. With its orientation, SKLGP integrates the generation background, forming mechanism, early identification, monitoring and early warning of serious geological disasters, which are either induced by nature or human activities, as well as the theories and methods of project management, forming a first-tier research centre, which combines applied basic research, the development and promotion of advanced technologies, the education of talents with international communication and cooperation, in a comprehensive way to support the national objective of geohazard prevention and geoenvironment protection theoretically and technologically.

With 60 years of state key discipline "geological engineering" development in Chengdu University of Technology, four research directions have been established in SKLGP under the combination of discipline frontier and key problems. They are: 1) serious geohazard assessment and prevention, 2) crossfeed action between human activities and geoenvironment and disaster control, 3) regional geoenvironment evaluation and protection, 4) geohazard monitoring and early warning and geoinformation systems.

In recent ten years, SKLGP has conducted nearly 1200 national and provincial research projects, solving series of theoretical and technological obstacles in geohazard prevention and major state projects. The research subjects involves geoenvironment protection and geohazard prevention, water resources and hydropower development, highway, railway, civil aviation airport construction, urban subway and development of high-rise building, etc. Through the implementation of the research projects, excellent results have been achieved: 3 first prizes and 2 second prizes of National Science and Technology Progress Award, 1 prize of China International Science and Technology Cooperation Award, 1 prize of Gold Medal of National Patent Achievement. And over 60 projects were awarded at ministerial or provincial level. More than 50 monographs and text books and over 3000 papers have been published in home and abroad. The total economic benefits of the projects have reached billions of yuan.
