PHIVOLCS and Province of Albay Commemorate 200-years of 1814 Mayon Volcano Eruption, 26-27 June 2014, Legaspi, Albay
Friday, 18 July 2014 14:53

Legaspi, Albay. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) in partnership with the Province of Albay commemorated the 200-years anniversary of the 1814 Mayon Volcano Eruption on 26-27 June at the La Piazza Hotel, Legaspi, Albay.

Eruptions from Mayon Volcano that people remember date back to 1968, 1978, 1984, 1993, 2000-2001, 2006 and 2009. What most people are probably not aware of is that, two hundred years ago, on 01 February 1814, Mayon Volcano gave one of its biggest, most destructive eruptions. This event affected the southern slope of the volcano, specifically Camalig, Cagsaua, Budiao and Guinobatan and resulted to 1,200 casualties. The ruins of Cagsaua Church wherein only the bell tower remains standing is a reminder and testimony of this disaster.

The 2-day conference was held to provide venue to hold a meeting of experts from different fields to share knowledge and experience. To have a science, historical and social perspectives, invited presentations 'had topics ranging from understanding Mayon

Exposure Database Development and Earthquake Risk Calculations Workshop for Region XI SUCs under Regional Disaster Science and Management S&T Capacity Development Project
Friday, 02 May 2014 11:21

PHIVOLCS conducted a two-day workshop entitled “Earthquake Risk Assessment Methodologies: Exposure Database Development and Calculations” for the Region XI State Colleges s and Universities (SUCs).  This activity is in line with the Regional Disaster Science and Management S&T Capacity Development Project, which is being funded by DOST-PCIEERD, and which PHIVOLCS is providing the techncial expertise.  The workshop was held at the University of Southeasthern Philippines (USEP), Obrero, Davao City from  April 10-11, 2014.  Participants from USEP, Davao Oriental State College of Science and Technology (DOSCST), Davao del Norte State College (DNSC), Southern Philippines Agri-Business and Marine and Aquatic School of Technology (SPAMAST) and UP Mindanao attended the workshop. The workshop aimed to teach the participants how to extract exposure information from their building survey and how to use said information for conducting earthquake risk assessment.

Aside from their own surveyed data, the participants were taught also how to derive building information from the national statistics data to make it useful for risk assessment.  The impact estimation module is now built-in into REDAS software and using the software, participants were able to compute earthquake risk for a  M8.3 March 14, 1924 scenario. They were able to visualize the map in REDAS and in Quantum GIS. Resource speakers and facilitators during the workshop were led by PHIVOLCS Deputy Director Bartolome C. Bautista and supported by Maria Leonila P. Bautista, Janila B. Deocampo, Johnlery P. Deximo, Abigail A. Polintan and Dave Andrei Rivera.
