Earthquake geology of Myanmar and surrounding areas
We propose to continue our paleoseismological and multi-lateral, international collaborations on active fault behaviors in Myanmar. In 2018, our three major goals are to (1) continue paleoseismological investigations of the central Sagaing fault by analysis of airborne LiDAR and UAV surveys and paleoseismic excavations along the 1839 earthquake rupture close to Myanmar’s capital, NayPyiTaw, (2) build regional research capacity in earthquake geology via field training courses, and (3) expand our multi-lateral collaboration on active tectonics and seismic ground-motions, through new geodetic and seismological observations.
