Active tectonics and society: Indonesian study tour

Students from ANU have helped to conduct a study that will improve earthquake preparedness on the Indonesian island of Lombok, the site of three major earthquakes in 2018. Data from the study will contribute to the improvement of building infrastructure and reduce earthquake vulnerability. Participating students were supported by the New Colombo Plan (NCP). In this video they talk about their experiences. 

A follow-up study tour will run from June 14 - 30 2019. On this tour, ANU students will partner with students from Mataram University in Lombok to interview villagers about the damage and their experience of the earthquakes. New Colombo Plan funding will be available to undergraduate Australian citizens who have not received NCP funding previously. This funding is expected to cover the entire cost of the trip.

Expressions of interest should be sent to phil.cummins@anu.edu.au by 17 May 2019.
