The Dam Behavior of Srinakarindh Dam is always a hot topic whenever earthquakes happen in Thailand. It is because the dam is located on the Three Pagoda fault zone running pass southern part of Myanmar and Western part of Thailand. Many workshops on the earthquake topic and dam side safety were organized here especially after the Andaman Earthquake in December 2004. Srinakarindh Dam is also a very good place to organize other workshop on Geoscience topics because there are many interesting sites for groundwater, fossil, and mining management. The longest gas pipe line from Yadana Gas field of Myanmar is also located not far from the dam toward the west.
Those topics related to Georesources Management are discussed during the DMR-CCOP Technical Workshop on Transboundary Georesources Management, 11-14 January 2017. All 14 participants, 5 resource persons, and 3 CCOPTS shared their own idea on Georesources Management. Mr. Nares Satayarak on “Petroleum Geologist: Beyond the Boundaries”, Mr. Nipon Amorntheparaksa on“Planning of Georesources Management”, Mr. Somchai Subprinyaporn on “Southeast Asia Georesources”, Dr. Dhiti Tulyatid on “How to manage international cooperation?”, Mr. Sompol Mahaprom on“Stake Holder Management (Mining)”, are topics presented during the first three days. Field trips to Nautiloid Geosite and Pilok old tin mine along the border line of Myanmar and Thailand are also included in the workshop.
Participants and CCOPTS made also three proposals on Georesources Transboundary Management, Groundwater, Construction Material and Active Fault where Thailand is a core study area. Information provided by the resource persons together with a quick look from the Web are the material for proposal preparation. All three proposals are not ready to be implemented yet but they are good enough for a further consideration as CCOP project in the near future.
