The Bataan Nuclear Power Plant
(BNPP)

Some Advantages of having a Power Plant in the Country .

Research Problem: But what are the Hazards(Geological) associated with the BNPP? .

Location Map .

Significance of studying the Hazards • Studying the geohazards in the area would aid in deciding whether to activate or not the BNPP .

Methodology  Remote Sensing and Lineament Analysis  Structural and Lithological Field Mapping  Radon Measurements  Seismicity .

Remote Sensing & Lineament Analysis .

Remote Sensing & Lineament Analysis .

Structural & Lithological Field Mapping .

Structural & Lithological Field Mapping *Deposits in the quarry near the Lingatin River .

Structural & Lithological Field Mapping *Deposits along the coast of Cabigo Point .

Structural & Lithological Field Mapping *Deposits in the Napot Point Area along the coast and within the BNPP site .

Structural & Lithological Field Mapping *Columnar jointed lava deposit near Marucdoc River .

Structural & Lithological Field Mapping *Fractures measured along the Cabigo Point coast .

Structural & Lithological Field Mapping *Faults at Napot Point .

Radon Measurements .

Seismicity .

CONCLUSION • The data gathered have been used as one of the scientific bases for the decision of the Philippine Government whether or not to activate the mothballed BNPP. • These data will also be useful for general hazard preparedness of communities on the slopes of the volcano. .
