6. Some projects, used seismograph GEODE by the Geophysical Division:

– Government Project: “Investigation, overall assessment geological and engineering geological features to propose solutions for territorial exploitation and using for construction and development infrastructure  of Vietnam’s coastal strip”;

– Investigation of engineering geology for building  Ninh Thuan 1 Nuclear Power Plant;

– Investigate engineering geology for the construction of the Xe Kha Man 1 and 2 hydroelectric dams in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic;

– Investigation of engineering geology for building  the National Assembly House in Hanoi.

And many other works.
