报告题目:On the use of GNSS displacement and GRACE gravity data for studying global and regional
                surface mass variation
报  告 人:Prof. Shin-Chan Han, University of Newcastle, Australia
邀  请 人:申文斌  教授
Professor Shin-Chan Han, a geodesist with NASA and academic in UON’s School of Engineering. His research focus is on the analysis of space geodetic measurements and theoretical modeling of geophysical processes that govern mass distribution and transport within the Earth and the terrestrial planets. Han started out using GPS and other satellite ranging measurements to analyze spacecraft orbits as well as surface deformation and gravity fields of the Earth and recently those of the Moon and Mars.  Han endeavored to exploit space geodetic measurements to tackle various geophysical problems, ranging from solid Earth, to terrestrial and atmospheric water, to ice mass and ocean, to ocean tides and bathymetry, to ionosphere, and to the gravity and topography of the Moon and Mars.
Han have demonstrated ability to develop cross-disciplinary research program and establish collaboration with scientists in various fields.  Han obtained a number of research grants during his tenure in US to pursue interdisciplinary research in Geodesy and Satellite Surveying for the Earth and planets.  During his tenure at NASA, total grant was over $2.4M and most of the funding was secured as Chief Investigator.
Han is also a winner of various prestigious awards given by American Geophysical Union, by NASA Headquarter, by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, by US Department of the Interior, by the American Congress on Surveying and Mapping, by the Institute of Navigation, by the Ohio State University, and by the South Korean government.
Since 2004, Han has been participating as a science team member for the Gravity Recovery And Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellite mission.  As a team member, Han has demonstrated applicability of satellite geodetic data to various problems in the Earth sciences: many of them being the “first-time” applications. Han has pioneered a number of geodetic techniques to process GRACE data and helped to maximize the science return from the GRACE mission.
