In 2014 and 2015, the Structural Geology group at EOS conducted seismic reflection acquisition in Nepal across the Main Frontal Thrust to constrain its geometry and kinematics.

We plan a reconstruction of late Quaternary environmental history of the Kallang basin, southern Singapore.

We propose using geomicrobiology to overcome the primary issue in documenting prehistorical coastal hazards which is the faint distinction between storm and tsunami deposited sediments.

Our knowledge of past sea-level change is largely relying on high-precision uranium/thorium disequilibrium dating on fossil corals.

The marine geophysical data collected during the 2015 MEGA-TERA expedition provide a unique window into the near-trench structure of the Sumatran accretionary wedge.

Over the years we have developed several films and interactive media that can be incorporated in the classroom as a teaching aid for Geography and Earth Science lessons. Teachers use our products but they frequently inquire about the availability of "Teachers' Manuals" that can guide them through the essential points and mechanics. The EOS Classroom Companions provide teachers with specific instructions and suggested 1-hr lessons plans, and fill the gap between our science - inspired films and interactive games and the Geography and Earth Science teachers who want a ready-to-use solution.

Paramesh Banerjee, Director of the Technical Office at the Earth Observatory of Singapore, was elected as the new President of the Asian Seismological Commission on 1 August 2017.

All Eyes and Ears: Insights from a Seismo-Geodesy Study into an Underground Nuclear Test Site

On 3 September 2017, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) conducted its sixth underground nuclear test at the Punggye-ri test site. In collaboration with scientists from Germany, USA, and China, my colleagues from the Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) and I published our findings in Science on 11 May 2018, revealing the complex physical processes associated with the nuclear test.

This webinar was part of the preparations for the Subduction Zone Observatory workshop held on 29 September to 1 October 2016 at the Boise Centre in Boise, Idaho, USA.
