PRESS RELEASE: DOST-PHIVOLCS REINFORCES EARTHQUAKE AWARENESS AND PREPAREDNESS OF THE DISASTER RISK REDUCTION OFFICERS OF BOHOL PROVINCE PDF Print
Tuesday, 09 October 2018 08:18

Five years have passed since the damaging 7.2 Magnitude Earthquake had hit the Province of Bohol in October 15, 2013. It is thus imperative to know what have been learned from this event, and what has been done in those years to rebuild all that is considered as the province’s legacy.

The Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (DOST-PHIVOLCS) committed to uphold its duty on improving the capacity of key stakeholders in the local government to engage in and conduct Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) initiatives on earthquake and tsunami, will carry-out an intensive one-day seminar-workshop in two (2) clusters, titled, “Seminar-Workshop for Local Government Units: Earthquake Awareness and Preparedness” on October 10 and 11, 2018 at the Belian Hotel, Tagbilaran City, Bohol.

This is in collaboration with the Provincial Government of Bohol, and geared towards capacitating the province’s forty-eight (48) City/Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Officers (C/MDRRMOs) on the basic information about earthquake, tsunami and its hazards, understanding hazard maps, preparedness, and mitigation, as well as  highlighting the lessons they learned from the earthquake events and augmenting their vital role in effective, credible, and accurate information dissemination.

In 2017, DOST-PHIVOLCS consequently held the same for the Local Government Units and Barangay Officials of the Municipality of Leyte, Province of Leyte, on May 24 at the Sabin Resort Hotel, Ormoc City, Leyte, as well as the Local Government Units of the Province of Cebu on July 26 and 27 at the Sarrosa International Hotel, Cebu City.

PRESS RELEASE: DOST-PHIVOLCS ESTABLISHES ITS 100th EARTHQUAKE MONITORING STATION PDF Print
Tuesday, 02 October 2018 16:05

The Department of Science and Technology - Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (DOST-PHIVOLCS) set up its 100th earthquake monitoring station at Bahay Pag-asa, Brgy. Rosario, Tandag City, Surigao del Sur. In celebration of this milestone, an inauguration will be held on 04 October 2018 at Mandarin Tea Garden, Tandag City.

The installation of the 100th seismic station enhances DOST-PHIVOLCS’ monitoring capacity and allows faster and more accurate determination of earthquake information.

Surigao del Sur is a seismically active area due to the presence of the Philippine Fault and the Philippine trench. The seismic station installed in Tandag City is capable of recording not only large magnitude earthquakes, but also very small earthquakes in the region. This will help the agency deliver more accurate and timely determination of earthquake parameters generated by active earthquake sources in and around the province.

DOST-PHIVOLCS started out with only 12 seismic stations when the earthquake monitoring function was transferred from Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) to then PHIVOLC in 1984. Since then, DOST-PHIVOLCS continuously expanded the Philippine Seismic Network by establishing additional earthquake monitoring stations located strategically all over the country through the support of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Philippine Government.

Geospatial Information Management and Analysis Project for Hazards and Risk Assessment in the Philippines The GeoRiskPH Project PDF Print
Monday, 03 September 2018 12:58

The PHIVOLCS FaultFinder, released in 2016, has revolutionized active fault assessment in the country, providing the public an easy and more user-friendly gateway to accurate active faults information. This year, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) funds another initiative proposed by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) to improve hazards and risk assessment.

DOST-PHIVOLCS commenced the project: Geospatial Information Management and Analysis Project for Hazards and Risk Assessment in the Philippines or GeoRiskPH last August 1, 2018. PHIVOLCS is joined by the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB), the National Mapping Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), and the Office of Civil Defense (OCD). Together, these agencies endeavor to create standards in the way government data and information necessary for hazards and risk assessment are contributed and retrieved to and from national database systems. Through GeoRiskPH, DOST-PHIVOLCS will develop prototype platforms, tools and methods to initiate efficient generation of information and products for hazard and risk evaluations.

The Project envisions to benefit various government agencies and the public as information on hazards and risks will be provided at the most efficient and convenient ways. Through this approach, information critical to Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and climate change initiatives may now be easily accessed by the government and the public. Long-term effect of the project would be the mainstreaming of DRR and climate change information into various related plans.

There are 17 additional project-based researchers, with backgrounds in GIS, IT, Computer Science, Geology and Geography, who are contributing to fast track the work. PHIVOLCS, together with the Technical Working Group from the Collective Strengthening on Community Awareness on Natural Disasters (CSCAND) agencies, will provide the necessary guidance to direct these researchers and ensure sustainability of the GeoRiskPH initiatives.

The Project will collaborate with other government agencies to ensure that the databases that will be developed are robust and that the platforms produced are usable by various stakeholders. DOST intends that more government agencies will be a part of GeoRiskPH in the coming years.
