World Heritage, “Preservation of Angkor ”
GRI has been supporting the preservation work of Angkor Heritage by sending members for Japanese Government Team for Safeguarding “Angkor,” since 1994. We had performed the first geological and geotechnical deep boring of 100m in Angkor in 1994.
 
We have found the special characteristics of manmade sandy mound that has been supporting high rise stone masonry tower for more than 700years. The sampled soil of sandy compacted mound is very hard like soft stone, however it easily collapsed when the sample was submerged under water within 10 min. We are preparing “Preventive Geo-Monitoring System” to preserve the Angkor Monuments from the anticipated heavy and long rain in global warming weather in the future.
