This visit of Prof. Murray and Dr. Sohbati to LZU aimed at the implement of field sampling for the joint funded Science Research Project of Denmark with Professor Meng Xingmin --- "Determination of Mass Movement Return Frequency along the Bailong River (Tibet) Using a New Rock-surface Dating Technique". Under the application of rock-surface dating technique invented by Prof.  Murray and Dr. Sohbati, the occurrence time of debris flow hazards in the basin of Bailong River will be ascertained. The technique, the most advanced one in dating technology around the world, has not yet been applied internatoionally into any geological disaster.
