PRESS RELEASE: DOST-PHIVOLCS COMPLETES RECONSTRUCTION OF EARTHQUAKE MONITORING STATION DAMAGED BY TYPHOON YOLANDA
Monday, 12 March 2018 10:48

The Department of Science and Technology - Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (DOST-PHIVOLCS) will inaugurate the reconstructed Palo Seismic Station on March 14, 2018 8:00 A.M. at Palo Seismic Station, Barangay Arado, Palo, Leyte.

In 2013, Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) damaged the PHIVOLCS Palo Seismic Station. After 4 years, DOST-PHIVOLCS has completed the reconstruction of the earthquake monitoring station in Palo, Leyte. It now operates using dual electricity source, solar power as the main power source and commercial electricity.

PHIVOLCS continuously expands the Philippine Seismic Network by establishing earthquake monitoring stations located strategically all over the country. This earthquake monitoring station has and will significantly benefit the Province of Leyte through increased detectability of events and more accurate and timely determination of earthquake parameters of events generated by active earthquake sources in and around the province. These parameters are important inputs for detailed assessment of earthquake hazards that could possibly affect the province which then is used for Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) plan of the province. This plan is a very important tool for decision-makers to come-up with right information provided to the public and respond properly when earthquakes occur.

Eastern Visayas, including Leyte, is one of the seismically active areas in the country because of the Philippine Fault and the Philippine Trench, which are the main earthquake generators that can affect the area. In addition, there are other local faults which can be sources of small to large-magnitude earthquakes. Last year, a magnitude 6.5 earthquake hit the province with the epicenter located 15 kilometer northeast of Ormoc City, Leyte.

Following the inauguration, PHIVOLCS will hold a press conference dubbed as PHIVOLCS InfoSentro that aims to give an update regarding the earthquake monitoring stations located in Palo and nearby areas, and PHIVOLCS’ projects and Disaster Risk Reduction programs to enhance the public’s means of preparedness for geologic events.

PRESS RELEASE: ESTABLISHMENT OF EARTHQUAKE MONITORING STATION IN IBAJAY, AKLAN
Sunday, 25 February 2018 10:22

The Department of Science and Technology - Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (DOST-PHIVOLCS) will inaugurate the Ibajay Seismic Station on February 27, 2018 8:00 A.M. at Ibajay Seismic Station in Aklan State University, Ibajay, Aklan.

PHIVOLCS aims to expand the Philippine Seismic Network by establishing additional earthquake monitoring stations located strategically all over the country. The recently established station is located in Ibajay, Aklan. This station will significantly benefit not only the Province of Aklan but also the Panay Island and the whole country as well through increased detectability of events and more accurate and timely determination of earthquake parameters of events generated by active earthquake sources in and around the province. These parameters are important inputs for detailed delineation of earthquake hazards that could possibly affect the province and the island of Panay which then is used for disaster prevention, mitigation, preparedness, and response plans. These plans are very important tools for decisions made by authorities in the information provided to the public. These will also help us to respond properly when an earthquake occurs.

The Island of Panay is transected and bounded by active earthquake generators and therefore, large-magnitude earthquakes have occurred in the region such as the Magnitude 7.2 December 1621 earthquake that changed the course of Aklan River, and the 1948 Magnitude 8.1 Panay Island earthquake (The Lady Caycay earthquake) which is one of the biggest earthquakes in the Philippines and damaged numerous historical churches in Panay Island.

Following the inauguration, PHIVOLCS will hold a press conference dubbed as PHIVOLCS InfoSentro that aims to give an update regarding the earthquake monitoring stations located in Ibajay and nearby areas, and PHIVOLCS’ projects and Disaster Risk Reduction programs to enhance the public’s means of preparedness for geologic events.

PHIVOLCS Researchers Joins the First AOGS-EGU Joint Conference
Monday, 12 February 2018 14:00

Twenty-two researchers from the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) joined the first Asia Oceana Geosciences Society and European Geosciences Union’s Joint Conference held at Taal Vista Hotel, Tagaytay on February 5-8, 2018. A total of 23 research studies was presented through oral and poster parallel sessions with themes “Black Swan and Grey Swan events”, “Natural Hazards in the Megacity”, “Natural hazard communications, warning and Monitoring”, and “Single Hazard Case Studies”. Among the research studies presented are the results of the assessments of the 10 February 2017 Surigao Earthquake and 06 July 2017 Leyte Earthquake, Landslide Warning and Monitoring developments, Volcano Monitoring parameters and updates, and the newly released Philippine Earthquake Model.

The conference, with the theme “New Dimension for Natural Hazards in Asia”, was attended by 155 foreign researchers from Asia, Europe and America, and 58 local researchers. The conference was not just limited to research presentations, but also includes panel and breakout discussions. Among the topics discussed in the panel discussions are Space-Based Technologies, Science and Insurance, Stochastic, deterministic and heuristic approaches to natural hazards, and Civil Defense and Geological Disaster in the Philippine Perspective. The breakout discussions on the other hand, focused on science research ethics after the disaster, hazards mitigation, warning-systems, and policy-making, and challenges in natural hazards research.

Aside from the presentations, PHIVOLCS also led the Taal Volcano Fieldtrip on February 5, which includes trips at the Taal Volcano Observatory and Taal Volcano Main Crater Lake.

DOST-PHIVOLCS TO LAUNCH PHILIPPINE EARTHQUAKE MODEL ATLAS FOR DESIGNING EARTHQUAKE RESILIENT BUILDINGS
Monday, 08 January 2018 15:54

The Department of Science and Technology – Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (DOST-PHIVOLCS) will launch the Philippine Earthquake Model (PEM) Atlas on January 17, 2018 at the 2/F Auditorium of PHIVOLCS Building, C.P. Garcia Avenue, UP Campus, Diliman, Quezon City.

This atlas is a handbook of probabilistic seismic hazard maps that will aid engineers in designing earthquake resilient buildings and structures. It can also be used as a tool for land use and urban planning, and disaster risk management plans of LGUs, government agencies, and other stakeholders.

The PEM Atlas aims to promote and enhance the existing National Structural Code of the Philippines (NSCP), a referral code of the National Buidling Code (NBC). This will serve as basis for designing earthquake resilient structures like residential and commercial buildings, critical facilities such as dams, bridges, and hospitals, and hazardous installations such as nuclear, biological, and chemical facilities.

PEM Atlas contains the Peak Ground Acceleration Maps and Spectral Acceleration Maps. These maps were generated from the Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis (PSHA) through the collaborative efforts and expertise of seismologists, geologists, engineers, and researchers from DOST-PHIVOLCS in consultation with Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers (PICE), Association of Structural Engineers of the Philippines (ASEP), Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), University of the Philippines Diliman – Institute of Civil Engineering (UPD-ICE), DOST- Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (PNRI), De la Salle University (DLSU), National Housing Authority (NHA), Insurance Commission (IC), Philippine Insurers and Reinsurers Association, Inc (PIRA), Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), Office of Civil Defense (OCD), and Metro Manila local government units (LGUs).

Copies of PEM Atlas will be distributed to partners. Stakeholders may request a CD containing a digital copy of the PEM Atlas to DOST-PHIVOLCS.
