Welcome to Geohazards and Smart Sensing lab!


We are dedicated to investigating and mitigating natural hazards resulting from climate change and earthquakes and intelligently monitoring geo-structures, aiming to enhance the resilience of our infrastructure. We will also focus on utilizing remote sensing and AI to detect carbon emissions and seek effective solutions for carbon collection and mitigation.


[Top news] Our lab has a fully-funded PhD position available, which can start in Fall 2024 or Spring 2025. If you are interested in this position, please contact Dr. Gong at weibing.gong@mst.edu

[2024-5-30] Dr. Gong delivered a presentation titled "Impact of Missing Source Areas and Volumes on Back-Calculating Regional Earthquake-Induced Landslides: A Case Study of the 2020 Mw 6.4 Puerto Rico Earthquake" at the mini-symposium "Natural Hazard Assessment with Monitoring, Modeling, and Uncertainty Quantification," which he co-chaired with Prof. Yichuan Zhu, during the EMI/PMC 2024 Conference

[2023-11-12] Dr. Gong is organizing a mini-symposium (MS 706), titled 'Natural Hazard Assessment with Monitoring, Modeling, and Uncertainty Quantification,' with Prof. Yichuan Zhu, and Prof. Hui Wang.
