Philippine Standard Time

Project Name:

Measurement of Velocities of Earthquake Faults (MOVE Faults)


Project Summary:

The project aims to (1) determine the crustal deformation patterns along active faults in the country by identifying which part of these active structures are locked, creeping or currently accumulating strains -- data that can be used to identify which areas are actively deforming; (2) quantify their velocities and (3) if possible, calculate their recurrence intervals. Results from this study can be used eventually towards the development of a more comprehensive program on the evaluation of seismic hazards and risks, an essential component of earthquake disaster mitigation projects.
