Doctor Weijia Kuang was invited to give a talk about "Geomagnetic Variability and Predictability" in meeting room of Key Laboratory of Computational Geodynamics,CAS on Feb. 22, 2012.
* Origins of Earth and planetary magnetic fields (geodynamo and planetary dynamo theories): numerical simulation of dynamical processes in the Earth's and planetary cores, and planetary magnetic evolution;
* Geomagnetic data assimilation: combining surface observations and dynamical models to predict geomagnetic secular variation, and to estimate the core state;
* Geomagnetic/geodynamo applications: time-varying geodetic observables (gravity field, Earth's angular momentum) arising from solid Earth and liquid core interactions;
* General computational fluid dynamics and nonlinear differential equations: numerical algorithm development, parallel and grid computation, ensemble analysis.
