1.Seismic Stratigraphy and 3-D Seismic Geomorphology, including seismic sequence analysis, seismic facies analysis, and 3-D seismic geomorphologic reconstruction by various slicing and attribute analysis techniques.Current interests focus on the deep-water turbidites and associated gravity flow deposits in the South China Sea.
2.Quantitative Seismic Interpretation Methods, including quantitative seismic sequence and facies analysis, geobody detection, chronostratigraphic or Wheeler volume reconstruction, and seismic slicing and attribute analysis.
3.Interpretation of Geophysical Well-Logging Data, focusing on processing and interpretation of high-resolution FMI/FMS/EMI image logs, gas hydrate well-logging evaluation, and applications of well-logging data in IODP scientific research (paleoceanologic, paleoenvirionmental and paleoclimatic reconstruction).
