                The purpose of this study is for the application research of the remote sensing data in monitoring and mapping the environment and natural resources of the Philippine Archipelago which is a model of the Southeast Asian island arc mobile belt. The main objectives include the monitoring of active volcanoes, mapping of geologic and tectonic environments of the geothermal field related to recent volcanic activities and active faulting of Philippine Islands.

                The study area is the Macolod Corridor region - where volcanic zones accompany vast geothermal fields. The uses of the JERS-1 SAR and LANDSAT TM data were executed. High priority is given to the geological structure analysis work in the Macolod corridor region. The study has been conducted in cooperation with the MGB, PHIVOLCS and PNOC-EDC.
