Carla B. Dimalanta
Field of award: Geology
Year awarded: 2003
Division: Physical Sciences
In recognition of her significant works and accomplishments in the field of Geology, specifically Geophysics. Dr. Dimalanta has contributed to the analysis of the delineation and interpretation of emplacement histories of various Philippine ophiolites, mineralization in several districts, and arc magmatism. These researches have filled needed information gaps in seismic, gravity and magnetic studies especially in terms of geophysical aspects. She has applied geophysical techniques in tectonic reconstructions and emplacement modeling of ophiolites and in investigating the mineralization potential of several areas. These works could pave the way for the responsible extraction and utilization of the country’s mineral resources and have applications in hazards assessment, land use, and planning.
