On the morning of November 18, Prof. SHEN gave two excellent presentations titled “Application of carbonate U-Th dating techniques to paleoclimate and paleoenvironment” and “Taiwan geology and scenery” to the researchers and students at the institute. His first presentation provided the latest development and application of the high-precision U-Th geochronology. The high-precision U-Th geochronology has been applied to high-precision past climatic and environmental changes, paleo-tsunami research, earthquake period of Sumatra, and organic evolution of early earth. In his second presentation, Prof. SHEN showed the geological vicissitude, geology geomorphology, and the tourism scenery of Taiwan. During his presentation, Prof. SHEN asked a few questions and each student who first answered the question won an interesting gift.

The audience were deeply impressed by Prof. SHEN’s richly-illustrated presentations. During his presentations, Prof. SHEN also had a thorough discussion with the audience, and answered many questions.
