Myanmar Project

In September 2010 ES&S, together with their local partner Suntac Technologies, completed the installation of three broadband seismic instruments, analysis software and workstations in Myanmar for the Myanmar Government's Department of Meteorology and Hydrology. Seismic installations were undertaken at Hpa-An in the southeast of the country, Pathein to the southwest and centrally at the nation's new capital, Nay Pyi Taw.

Each of the recording stations comprises an ES&S Kelunji EchoPro six channel seismic recorder and Guralp CMG-3ESP Compact broadband seismometer. The two remote sites at Hpa-An and Pathein use satellite telemetry to transfer seismic data to the data centre at Nay Pyi Taw.

An ES&S eqServer system, which is a complete seismic observatory data reception and analysis system, was installed at the newly constructed DMH Seismology building. Training of local seismologists and technicians was carried out at Nay Pyi Taw and at the remote seismic sites.

Together with existing telemetered data and an additional ES&S Kelunji recorder that is digitising an old analogue sensor at Yangon, the system will provide for automatic location of significant earthquakes in Myanmar and possible tsunamigenic earthquakes in the Bay of Bengal.
