Singapore-WiscAr Partnership (SWAP)

Our aim is to establish a collaborative geochronology partnership between the Earth Observatory of Singapore and the WiscAr geochronology laboratory at the University of Wisconsin, targeting geochronology needs in Southeast Asia. This will augment and expedite ongoing and future EOS research, formalize ties between EOS and a leading Ar‐Ar geochronology laboratory, offer access to precision Ar‐Ar dating to collaborators in neighboring countries, and strengthen EOS as a regional geohazards hub. The project will facilitate fundamental research on earthquakes and volcanic eruptions in and around southeast Asia, and help to advance Earth Science research toward safer and more sustainable societies.
