Research Profile

    Wang Shui, academician of CAS, was born in Apr.1942. He graduated from Nanjing University in 1961 and was assigned to teaching in USTC since 1961 to present. He was appointed as associate professor in 1978, professor in 1985, and PhD. Supervisor in 1986. He was elected as academician of CAS in 1993. Currently, he is the chairman of Chinese Geophysical Society, executive director of Chinese Society of Space Research, discipline representative of Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics of International Council for Science. His researches mainly focus on space physics. In 1970s, he and fellow researchers took the lead in observation and research on whistle and very low frequency emission and proposed observational evidence of low-latitude catheter whistle. In 1980s, he and fellow researchers developped Euler fully implicit numerical scheme in spherical coordinates and the near characteristic boundary conditions of Multi-dimensional time-varying flow, and developped systematic MHD numerical research on Solar Atmospheric Dynamics like coronal disturbances spread. In the end of 1980s, he and fellow researchers did research on the stability of flow current sheet with super-Alfven speed and explored its physical propertities and non-linear evolution. In 1990s, he and fellow researchers did research on magnetic reconnection process of coronal current sheet and published a monograph Magnetic Reconnection. In 21st century, he and joint researchers did theoretical research on space plasma physics, and discovered that through numerical simulation of the whole particle, collisionless magnetic reconnection can activate whistler wave. He has published over 160 papers, and over 20 Ph.D. candidates and master degree students graduated under his supervision. He won the Second Prize of National Natural Science in 1993 and several Natural Science Awards of CAS and Ho Leung Ho Lee Science and Technology Progress Award in 2000.
