Geo-Hazard

Geological & Environmental

GSA brings together a multi-disciplinary team with expertise in geology, geophysics, geomorphology and geotechnical engineering with the ability to offer a complete Geo-hazard service covering identification, risk assessment, analysis, solution engineering and management.

The most probable geologic hazards that may take place in the Middle East region are associated with Earthquakes, Floods, Rock Fall, and Volcanic Eruptions.

Earthquake Monitoring

Seismology - the science of earthquakes - covers a broad range of applications. It not only measures the natural events but also seismic monitoring stations can be used to detect, locate and identify man-made events.

Recent Earthquakes: The rapid provision of information on earthquakes, and the assessment of their damage potential, is of crucial significance for governmental and local authority agencies and organisations to enable them to implement the necessary emergency measures when required.

Earthquake Interpretation: Seismologists assess on a daily basis, latest seismic events.

Earthquake Statistics: Number of earthquakes with different magnitudes and are presented chronologically.

Seismological Measures for Hazard Mitigation: Detail seismic sounding and geological investigation for fault systems along coastline. Establishment of National system for earthquake information and Tsunami warning. Education and training of earthquake and Tsunami hazard preparedness for the population and community, Calculation model for Tsunami propagation and inundation.

Strong Motion Monitoring

Strong Motion Monitoring is obtaining reliable seismic data in real-time.

Large Structure, Civil Engineering and Research Consulting, Building Monitoring, Site Surveys and Analysis

Vibration Monitoring

Vibration Monitoring: Road and railways, Construction activities such as piling, blasting and tunneling, Blast Monitoring, Construction Monitoring.

Rock Fall Hazard Mitigation and Early Warning

Rock Fall Hazard Mitigation and Early Warning: Hence, the growing impact of slope instability risks on the society and the economic development calls for advanced and efficient monitoring methods, improved strategies for hazard mitigation and early warning systems can only be achieved by enhanced interdisciplinary research.

Volcanic Hazard Mitigation

Volcanic Hazard Mitigation: By monitoring the seismic and geological activity, warn people ahead of time about impending danger. Volcanologists can measure the size of an eruption in two ways, the eruption magnitude (measured by the volume or mass of magma erupted) and eruption intensity (measured by the rate of magma erupted). There are also various forms of satellites and imagery, which monitor the activity.
