Who are we?

DSC_0496Welcome to the website of the Myanmar Paleoclimate and Geodynamics research group (MyaPGR group). Founded in Winter 2016, our group brings together international and Burmese scientists to study the geological record of Myanmar.


The MyaPGR group organizes:

  1.  yearly fieldtrips to central Myanmar, focusing on geodynamic, tectonic, paleoclimatic, and paleoenvironmental studies of the Burmese sedimentary archives;
  2.  Lectures, workshops, and conference sessions focusing on Southeast Asian geological and climatic topics, in Myanmar and elsewhere;
  3.  Exchange of faculty members and students for study, teaching, and research related to Earth Sciences;
  4. Outreach activities, in Myanmar and elsewhere, to sensitize the public on geological and climate change related hazards.
