Marine Sedimentary Geochemistry & Oil, Gas and NGH Resource Group

The research group of marine sedimentary geochemistry and resource of oil, gas and NGH (natural gas hydrate) is headed by Dr. Huaiyan Lei, including three Doctoral students: Yang Yufeng, Zhangjie, Kongyuan and three Master students: Lin Zhongliang, Luyi, and Chenyong. And nearly 30 students have already graduated.

Dr. Huaiyan Lei is also the editorial member of Journal of Paleogeography, Natural Gas Geoscience, Journal of Applied Oceanography. He was in charge of more than 10 projects, including 75, 85, 95 State Key Research Projects and the National Basic Research Program of China (973 Program). He had chaired 8 projects of the National Natural Science Foundation and over 30 Scientific Research Projects Consigned by Enterprises, such as Dagang, Liaohe, Shengli and so on. More than 100 papers were published in core periodical at home and abroad, like SCI, EI, CSCD. Additionally, he was awarded the State Natural Science Award, National Science Progress Award and other awards, which added up to 11.
