Under the theme of "the Belt and Road & Earth Sciences", hot issues were discussed at the congress, including Icy Science, Geodesy, Geomagnetism and high altitude physics, Hydrology, Meteorology and atmospheric science, Marine physical science, Seismology and physics of the earth's interior, Volcanology and the chemistry of the earth's interior. And ten Outstanding Young Schorlars’ Thesis Awards were also presented to encourage young scholars at the event. In addition, it facilitated universities and institutes in Central and Western China to provide intellectual support and serve as a bridge and bond in international cooperation in the future.
With the aim to facilitate Chinese scientists’ engagement in the implementation of the Future Earth Program raised by the International Science Council (ISC), especially the four global environmental change (GEC) research programs, the congress has been held every two years by the Chinese National Committee for International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (CNC-IUGG) since 2014.
The 3rd Congress of China Geodesy and Geophysics opens in Lanzhou University on Aug. 23, 2018.

This year’s congress was undertaken by Lanzhou University, and co-organized by the Global Navigation Satellite System & Location Based Service Association of China（GLAC）and other institutions. The host hopes to make the congress an influential get-together on earth system sciences as well as a chance to promote its own development.
CNC-IUGG was co-founded by the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 1979. It aims to develop China’s earth sciences, strengthen exchanges and cooperation between China and related international scientific organizations, publicize China’s achievements in earth sciences, and promote international academic progress of earth science with the Chinese scientists’ contributions.
