volcanologists who forecast volcanic unrest, including its causes and outcomes, in Southeast Asia or around the world.

The EOS also plans to embark on outreach and education programmes to reach out to students in secondary schools and junior colleges to spark their interests in the earth sciences. It looks forward to working closely with schools in helping them develop their curriculum in earth sciences which may include immersion programmes and field excursions jointly organised with the EOS.

Professor Kerry Sieh, one of the world's foremost seismologist and tectonicist, leads the EOS as its Director. "The EOS is well-positioned to answer the challenge of acquiring scientific knowledge of natural processes and utilising it appropriately and in a timely fashion," says Professor Sieh. "Such information will be invaluable for communities living in 'the jaws of a dragon' in Southeast Asia, who are exposed to natural calamities but have little scientific awareness of the tenuousness of their existence. Such was the tragedy of the 2004 tsunami in Aceh, Indonesia which killed hundreds of thousands."

"We will help blaze a new path through the fascinating mysteries of the dangerous, dynamic processes shaping and renewing the thin shell of our planet that we call home," says Professor Sieh. "We also aim to be modern scientific high priests, illuminating those marvelous phenomena and their attendant perils to our fellow sojourners who include civic leaders, engineers and planners, all altruists working to make the world a safer and more enjoyable place."

Dr Su Guaning, NTU President, noted that as Singapore's first Research Centre of Excellence (RCE) devoted to earth sciences, the EOS will be receiving joint funding of up to $150m over 10 years from the Ministry of Education and the National Research Foundation.

"NTU is honoured to set up the Earth Observatory of Singapore which has attracted some of the world's leading earth sc
