Brief Introduction of Prof. Dr. Weiping JIANG:

Prof. Dr. Weiping JIANG works at GNSS research center of Wuhan University and is the deputy director of this center. He received his PhD degree in Wuhan University in June 2001 post-doctoral research associate with Nordic Volcanlogical Center in Iceland from August 2003 to August 2004. Prof. Dr. Weiping JIANG was a visiting Professor in Stuttgart University from March to December 2007. He is Professor of Wuhan University since 2005.
Prof. Dr. Weiping JIANG current research interests are the theory of satellite geodesy and its applications. He gave the new algorithm of integrated large-scale GNSS network analysis, and made a precise environment loading model to correct the non-linear variations in coordinate time series. He established a new dynamic model to monitor the deformation of plate boundary using GNSS technology, determined firstly the velocity field of Iceland by GNSS, and discussed the coupling mechanism between post-glacial rebound and global warming in Iceland. Prof. Dr. Weiping JIANG proposed a set of methods for processing multi-mission satellite altimetry data, and developed global mean sea surface height model. He also determined the rising velocity and acceleration of global mean sea level quantitatively over the last 60 years.
Up to now, Prof. Dr. Weiping JIANG has published more than 120 papers, and is the Principal Investigator of 35 sponsored research projects. He won twice the second class prizes of China National Science and Technology Progress Award, and was also awarded the first class prize of Provincial Science and Technology Progress Award for sixth times. Prof. Dr. Weiping JIANG was also supported by the “China National Hundred, Ten Thousand Talents Project” and the Program for Changjiang Scholars of the Ministry of Education of China. Meanwhile, he won the Twelfth Youth Science and Technology Prize of China, and the National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars of China.
