As a participant in SEG's Geoscientists Without Borders program, wehave developed a geophysics field camp in northern Thailand totrain students and professionals from throughout Southeast Asia in field-basedgeophysical methods. Over the past two years, faculty, technicians, professionals,and students from 18 institutions and 11 countries have acquired,processed, and interpreted geophysical data at field sites in andaround Chiang Mai, Thailand. Participation from undergraduate students, graduate students,and private and public sector geoscience professionals provides a broadbase of experience, background, and insight. Our training has providedopportunities for cross-cultural collaboration and education, and a greater useof field-based geophysical methods for academic, private sector, and governmentagencies throughout Southeast Asia.
