Geologic Hazards
Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources
The Geologic Hazards Research conducts specialized researches to respond to geological disasters such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and landslide disasters on and around the Korean Peninsula. The research observes and analyzes natural and artificial earthquake activities, and also focuses on the characteristics of earthquake occurrence in the southeastern region, earthquake disaster evaluation, and mitigation research. In addition, the research also implements research on active tectonics, volcanoes, and landslides to protect precious lives and property from more diverse and complex geological disasters.
