Thailand: Geologists urged to help prevent disasters

Source(s):  Bangkok Post - Post Publishing Public Company Limited, the

Talking at the 12th regional congress on Geology, Mineral and Energy Resources of Southeast Asia, Songpope Polachan, president of the Geological Society of Thailand, calls on geologists to play more active roles in designing city planning to prevent possible geological hazards, as reported by the Bangkok Post.

"Whatever attempts to preserve geological resources for future generations, to avoid natural disasters, reduce possible damages, and also city planning, those people involved must not forget to discuss [these matters] with geologists," he said, as geologists can identify possible geological hazards and know very well how to build efficient floodwalls around industrial estates and in areas prone to earthquakes.
