Tuguegarao City, Cagayan- The University of the Philippines Diliman and University of Glasgow in Scotland has partnered with Mines and Geosciences Bureau in a new research about river morphology and its associated processes that could impact people and infrastructures.
The study will develop a national-scale catchment characteristics database and associated river geometry relations to assess the susceptibility of different catchments to morphological change impacts on flood hazards.
To participate in the discussion on geologic data which will be utilized for the current year’s activities, five geologists of the Mines and Geosciences Bureau Regional Office No. II participated in the 2019 Annual Geosciences Workshop held on 18-22 January 2019 at Xenxia Hotel, Clark Freeport Zone, Pampanga.
