Zhao Pengda

Biography
Zhao Pengda, male, Manchu nationality, is a native of Qingyuan, Liaoning Province. He graduated from Beijing University in 1952 and received an associate doctorate from the Soviet Union Moscow Geological Surveys College in 1958.
Zhao Pengda has researched the application of mathematic models in minerals reconnaissance. He set up the quantitative forecasting theory and method system for minerals resources. With regard to the quantitative prediction of mineralizing of Ningwu, Gejiu, Tongling and Sinkiang, among others, in different scales, he established the new subject of "ore deposit statistical prediction". In 1978, Zhao created the courses of "mathematics geology" and "ore deposit statistical prediction" and trained about 40 postgraduate students.
In 1992 Zhao received the top prize of the International Mathematics Geology Association for his experience and contributions as a "researcher, educator and guide in the mathematics geology field."

Yin Hongfu

Biography
Yin Hongfu, male, Han nationality, is a native of Zhoushan, Zhejiang Province. He graduated from the Beijing College of Geoscience in 1956 and received a postgraduate degree from the college in 1961.
Yin Hongfu initiated the research orientation of bio-geology and promoted the entire combination of paleontology and geology. He introduced the discontinuity balance theory, a new theory of catastrophic events, event stratigraphy, proposed the geologic evolvement discontinuity theory, and widely affected the study of extinction events between the Paleozoic and Mesozoic periods. Yin also published the paleoecology textbook and completed the first ecostratigraphy monographs and Chinese paleobiogeography, the latter has been published in Oxford University (in 1994).
In the biogenic mineralizing field, Yin proposed an organism-organic matter-organic fluid mineralizing system. With regard to the pedospherical system, Yin stressed the study of the Changjiang River environment evolution and proposed the non-Wilson cycle, non-Smith stratigraphy and mapping methods. He published the description of almost 300 kinds of fossils, which play an important role in establishing the Triassic period stratum system of Guizhou, Qinghai, and Gaisu.
Yin summarized the Triassic system of China and East Asia, and was the first to propose the new definition of borderline Permian-Triassic systems. He also proposed the volcanic causes of the formation theory of borderline events and, under his leadership, the global boundary stratotype of Permian-Triassic system (gold nail) was defined at Changxing, Zhejiang Province. He has published 21 monographs and 180 papers.
Yin is an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Yu Chongwen

Biography
Yu Chongwen, male, Han nationality, is a native of Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, and was born in Shanghai. He graduated from Beijing University in 1950.
Yu Chongwen has studied the theory of geochemistry with the result of opening up several new academic fields including multivariant analysis for geology geochemistry . This field studies the values and geometric features of multicomponent system by use of multivariate statistical analysis, and researches the geologic process, geological field process and geological field by the random process and random fields.
Another of the new academic fields opened by Professor Yu is aerial geochemistry, which studies the lithogeous process and mineralizing process through the imbalance and irreversible process of thermodynamics. Based on the dissipative structure theory, Yu put forward an aerial geochemical theory.
A final process was the complexity of mineralizing systems. Yu proposed a new mineralizing theory and methodology: "fractal growth of mineralizing dynamic system at the chaos fringe", which caused the formation of ore deposit and mineralizing law, the research of which has advanced the ordinary gitology to non-linearity and complexity science level.
Yu is an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Zhang Benren

Biography
Zhang Benren, male, Han nationality, is a native of Huaiyuan, Anhui Province. He graduated from Nanjing University in 1952 and received a postgraduate degree from the Beijing College of Geoscience in 1956.
During the early 1980s, Zhang Benren combined the study of the geochemistry of mineralizing belts with the aerial basement rock geochemical measurement. He made breakthroughs in finding single minerals and evaluated the abnormal liminations by the abnormity of geochemical examination at that time. He created several applications for solving the geologic and mineralizing problems with the measuring data of basement rock.
From the late 1980s to 1991, Zhang proposed a new theory and method of aerial geochemistry on the basis of aerial lithosphere for the aerial geochemical study of Qinling-Bashu area, which combined the study of aerial lithosphere and aerial structure, petrology, and mineral science and deepened the knowledge of the aerial lithosphere evolvement, structural development, and the diagenetic and mineralizing law.
Since 1992, Zhang has addressed the structural division and evolvement of the Qinling Mountains

Zhai Yusheng

Biography
Zhai Yusheng, male, Han nationality, is a native of Wenan, Hebei Province. He graduated from Beijing University in 1952 and received a postgraduate degree from the Changchun University of Earth Science in 1957.
Zhai Yusheng has carried out research in the field of mineral structure and proposed a mineralizing contact belt structural system and the structure-mineralizing mode of many ore deposits. He developed the study of mineral field structures, particularly the geometric analysis of the study of the dynamic coupling relationship between the structures and mineralizing, which opened up a new research field.
Zhai worked as the editor in chief of the first minerals field structure monograph in China. He established the minerals field structure science based on, the combination of structure research and causes of ore deposit formation, the combination of single structural study and the study of structural systems. He also studied the combination of minerals field structural study and aerial structure study and the combination of structural development stages and geologic belt divisions. With regard to metallic gitology, Zhai reestablished the lithogenous and mineralizing process of anorthosite and iron mine in Damiao, Hebei Province. He determined the cause of the iron-rich ore deposit in east Hunan Province and discovered new types of iron mine. Based on his mineralizing system structure, Zhai compiled the first monograph of a comprehensive aerial mineralization science.
Zhai is an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
