Challenges of Conducting Field-Based Research in a Pandemic
Event Type: Seminar
Date: 16 February 2021, 13:00 to 15:00
About the Event
Using geological methods to study active faults mostly require collecting data through field work. The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted our work in many ways, including limiting travel and mobility during data collection processes, as well as delaying the
sample process and analysis. Through this presentation, we will be discussing about the existing challenges of studying active faults in Indonesia, how the Covid-19 pandemic adding complication to the existing challenges and laying out some possibilities
and adaptation strategies that may help us to overcome the challenges.
The recorded version of this live webinar is now available for viewing.
