Earthquake geology of Myanmar and surrounding areas

This project is a multi-lateral collaboration between several EOS researchers and colleagues at other research institutions to study the tectonics and earthquakes of Southeast Asia. The project focuses on active faults of Myanmar, Thailand and adjoining countries. There are three major components within this 3-year project:

  • Regional and detailed active fault mapping for seismic hazard analysis
  • Paleoseismology to constrain earthquake histories of major active faults
  • Research capacity-building is also part of the project and aims to strengthen the paleoseismological research community in Southeast Asian countries.
