Rates and timing of uplift of the Laoag Dune System and Paoay Lake, Ilocos Norte, Philippines
The coastline of Laoag has been affected by tectonic uplift at various times, resulting in stranded historic shorelines and dune systems. This project will use a combination of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and OSL dating to gauge the amount and determine the timing of uplift for the area.
