At the invitation of the State Key Laboratory of Geodesy and Earth’s Dynamics, Dr. SUN Xinlei from Guangzhou Institute of Geochemistry visited WHIGG on Oct. 10th, 2012.
Dr. SUN delivered a scientific speech titled:” Three-dimensional anisotropy of Earth’s inner”. SUN gave a detailed introduction about the anisotropy structure of the inner core in both radial and longitudinal directions. She also introduced a three-dimensional ray tracing method to trace and retrace the seismic waves through the inner core iteratively. She discussed with IGG researchers on current research issues on Earth’s inner and future research hot topics.
Dr. SUN got her PhD from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
and returned back to China with the support from “Hundred Talents Program” of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
