About RWG


The Rushurgent Working Group is one of the research groups at the National Institute of Geological Sciences in UP Diliman. The group came into being in 1992 when Dr. Graciano P. Yumul, Jr. put together a dynamic group of people with different fields of interest.

Our research interests include:
• ancient and modern marginal basins of the Western Pacific
• geology of the Philippines and Asia
• upper crust - mantle sequences
• island arcs
• high & low temperature geochemistry
• petrography and geochemistry of sedimentary sequences
• crustal thickness
• exploration geophysics
• mineral exploration
• mineralization models
• neotectonics and tectonic hazards
• climate change adaptation
• disaster risk management
• science policy and communication
