Regional Geological Survey in China puts forward the Global goal
Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, 6 Nov (Reporter Wang Libin) after a century of regional geological survey in China, the overall reform will be completed by 2021, comparable to that of Europe and the United States, and high-quality development will be achieved in 2025, leading the global goal.
The National Conference on Regional Geological Survey held here on the 6th proposed that it is necessary to speed up the adjustment of the strategic structure, promote the high-quality development of regional geological survey work, and build a world-class regional survey business system and talent team system. Realize the integration of geological mapping and scientific research, enhance the ability to solve the basic geological problems restricting major resources and environment and the scientific problems of the earth system, promote the original innovation and technological progress, and lead the development of global geological mapping.
According to reports, the regional survey work is the basis for the cause of geological survey. In 1910, Kuang Rongguang published the first geological map of China, "Zhili Geological Map", which opened the prelude to the cause of regional geological survey in China. Since the founding of New China, the "two bombs and one satellite", the Qinghai-Tibet Railway, the South-to-North Water transfer Project, the West-to-East Gas Transmission Project, the three Gorges Project, and the Sichuan-Tibet Railway have all condensed the painstaking efforts of regional survey workers from the national weight to the century project. It provides the basic support of mineral resources for the process of industrialization in China.
Li Jinfa, deputy director of the China Geological Survey, said: regional survey is science and technology intensive work. At present, geological work in major developed countries has completed a strategic transformation from serving resources mainly to serving resources security, land and space planning, and ecological restoration. The field of work has shifted from land to land and sea. Russia, the United States, Canada, Australia and other countries have carried out three-dimensional geological mapping, extending to the depth of the earth. China's regional survey work will be based on scientific and technological innovation, from hammer, compass, magnifying glass "old three" + notebook computer, digital camera, GPS locator "new three" to "star sky and ground" three-dimensional survey technology system. We will continue to promote institutional reform and technological progress, complete the overall regional survey reform by 2021, match that of Europe and the United States, and achieve high-quality development and lead the global goal in 2025.
