In order to mitigate and prevent the most serious mountain hazards in Sichuan, Sichuan Mountain Hazards Mitigation Engineering and Technology Research Center (SMHMETRC) is established by Department of Science and Technology of Sichuan Province and Chengdu Branch of the Chinese Academy of Sciences on October 2007. SMHMETRC is founded on Chengdu Institute of Mountain Hazards and Environment (IMHE), and the main researchers come from Key Laboratory of Mountain Hazards and Earth Surface Process, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
SMHMETRC is mainly engaged in engineering prevention and mitigation technology research and development of debris flow, landslide, avalanche, flash flood and soil erosion et al mountain hazards in Sichuan. At present, SMHMETRC is composed of 80 scientists, experts and engieners,and have more than 200 instruments and equipemts and 3 field workshop platforms. SMHMETRC owns geological hazard survey, design and evaluation, mine environment evaluation, soil and water conservasion project design et al 9 the first class and second certificates, we have finished more than 300 items in last 20 years and achieve great economic and social benefits all over China.
Enhance mountain hazards prevention and mitigation science and technology level, face and serve western mountain region engineering reconstruction needs
Based on solving the mountain hazard problems during engineering reconstruction of Sichuan and
Western region,to set up a national and international top-ranking mountain hazards mitigation
engineering group, and let SMHMETRC become ChinaMountain Hazards Mitigation
Engineering and Technology Research Center in near future.
