of internal structure of the earth owe to seismology. Today it is
not only the tool for the assessment of seismic hazard but also a
tool to study the earth structure and image the subsurface for
mineral and oil exploration.
The more we invest in basic research to upgrade ourl
knowledge in geoscience, the the higher the chance that our
development challenges will be met. Such investment cannot
produce an instantaneous, directly tangible return. The benefit
from research investments such as in the Department of Mines
and Geology, National Seismological Network is essentially the
disaster mitigation effects made possible by the scientific
