China’s Top Geological Experts: Constantly Pursue Technology and Achieve the Pinnacle of the Field

With the rapid development of the global economy, the demand for resources in various countries is gradually increasing. After centuries of development and resource development, all countries are currently facing the huge challenge of rationally implementing further resource development on the basis of existing development, and they are naturally more eager for technical talents in the corresponding fields. GU Yanyan, a top geological engineering expert in China, said that the further development of geological resources requires continuous optimization of technology and equipment. As development areas and development resources become more and more scarce, there are higher requirements for practitioners’ technical expertise and practical ability than before.

Possessing Outstanding Professional Skills and Rich Experience

GU Yanyan graduated from China University of Geosciences (Beijing), majoring in groundwater science and engineering. China University of Geosciences (Beijing) is one of the first batch of “211 Project” and “985 Project Advantageous Discipline Innovation Platform” key construction universities and “Double First-Class” construction universities. China University of Geosciences (Beijing) has sent a large number of top international talents to the world’s geological engineering field every year. As an outstanding graduate of the school, GU Yanyan’s professional ability is beyond doubt.

For many years since graduation, GU Yanyan has been deeply involved in the field of geological engineering, and has been committed to the improvement of geological engineering professional skills and the practice of geological project investigations. She has participated in many well-known domestic geological projects such as “Detailed investigation of drinking natural mineral water in Jingangtai, Shangcheng County, Henan Province”, “Investigation and research on shallow geothermal energy in the core cities of the Central Plains urban agglomeration”, “1:50,000 hydrogeological survey of shallow geothermal energy development zones in major cities in Henan Province”, “Investigation and evaluation of shallow geothermal energy in Zhumadian City” and achieved outstanding results. Over the past ten years, GU Yanyan has won many top awards in the industry, and her professional technical ability and practical experience have been highly recognized in the industry. She is a rare top talent in the field of geological engineering.

Dare to Challenge Herself and Achieve New Breakthroughs

“I firmly believe that all efforts will eventually turn into new gains.” GU Yanyan said that continuous self-improvement and self-challenge at work can keep her in a state of progress. The accumulation of this progress has brought her to a higher stage in the field of geological engineering. It is understood that the “Detailed Survey of Drinking Natural Mineral Water in Jingangtai, Shangcheng County, Henan Province” project that GU Yanyan participated in completed the survey in a short period of time with a total area of 12 square kilometers, of which the survey area of the detailed survey area is nearly 7 square kilometers. Since the detailed investigation area includes several administrative villages, has nearly 20 resident groups, and involves more than 3,000 residents, it is necessary to pay special attention to the use of drinking natural mineral water resources in the process of carrying out the project and the impact of future redevelopment of related resources.

After a series of data research and investigation, GU Yanyan decided to set up a special project research team, and innovatively used the form of a unified questionnaire to investigate the hydrogeological conditions of the detailed survey area and the peripheral areas of the detailed survey area. The survey content is extremely detailed, including topography, stratum age, stratum structure, lithology survey of vadose zone, storage conditions of natural mineral water sources, stratum structure of boreholes and civil wells, etc. Previously, due to limitations in technology and equipment, related research and investigations were limited to relatively simple surface data, and there was no detailed information on geological conditions to provide reference. In the face of many uncertainties and poor site survey conditions, after GU Yanyan’s detailed deployment, the geological and water resources survey task was completed very well. It breaks through the limitations of previous related research, such as limited survey technology and scattered geological resource data, ensures the integrity of project data, and reaches a new level of related research. Not only that, but it also provides an industry-authoritative value reference opinion for the base price of the sale of the “General Survey and Prospecting Rights for Drinking Natural Mineral Water in Jingangtai, Shangcheng County, Xinyang City, Henan Province”. With the support of GU Yanyan’s excellent professional ability, the excellent project achievement of “Detailed Investigation of Drinking Natural Mineral Water in Jingangtai, Shangcheng County, Henan Province” has become another benchmark in the field of geological engineering.

Adhere to the Pursuit of Technology and Move Towards the Peak

When asked what makes GU Yanyan a leading expert in the field of geological engineering, she replied: “It is the pursuit.” GU Yanyan said that the pursuit of professional technology is the key to making outstanding achievements in the field of geological engineering. Solid professional technology is the basis for the smooth development of the project and the realization of new breakthroughs. During the process of the project and related research, continuous learning is required. She suggested that researchers can start from subtle points, gradually improve, set small goals for themselves in each project and research, and try their best to achieve them. Although it is not possible to complete the set small goals every time, the process of setting goals and working towards them can allow oneself to conduct self-reflection well. Whoever can better understand their current problems and deficiencies will be able to achieve breakthroughs in future improvements. Only if you want to be the top, can you become the top.

The progress of the world is inseparable from the support of technology, and a heart that pursues technological progress and wants to become the pinnacle is a powerful internal driving force to promote technological development. In the future, GU Yanyan will continue to deepen the field of geological engineering, adhering to the original intention of promoting global geological engineering to a new level, constantly pursuing technological innovation and progress, and contributing to the development of world geological engineering.(Reporter: Aaron Chung)
