New map will provide important seismic information
The National Geological Service, together with the Geological and Mining Scientific Research Institutes from Spain and France, will present in March 2017 the results of a “micro-zone seismic map of Greater Santo Domingo and Santiago. This map will identify the most vulnerable places for earthquakes and will recommend what type of construction should be permitted at each location.
The presentation of the results of the study will be part of the conference the International Congress of Applied Geology, which will be presented by the Dominican Geological Society (Sodogeo) from the 15-17 March at the PUCMM university in Santo Domingo.
Miguel Diaz, the society president, said that the studies offer members of the society as well is the general population information and understanding regarding seismic risks and provide engineering standards which have to be adopted in order to carry out construction projects.
