Online seminar for CCOP Member Countries

GSJ Webinar on Practical Geological Survey Techniques
- Application to Geological Disaster Mitigation –

Due to the global spread of COVID-19, we decided not to hold a face-to-face training course in 2021. Instead, we plan three online seminars which are for young geological researchers and engineers who belong to national geological survey institutes in the member countries of CCOP (the Coordinating Committee for Geoscience Programmes in East and Southeast Asia).

  • Webinar Format: Online using the Zoom application
  • Language: English
  • Lecturers: GSJ researchers and other Japanese organizations


Course 1: Lectures on geological disaster mitigation

This course provides lectures on geohazards, basic geology, and gravity and magnetic exploration techniques. It also includes a virtual tour of the Geological Museum of GSJ.

  • Period: June 28–30, 2021
  • Quota: Three persons from one country
Course 2: Practical training on Geographic Information System (GIS)
