Radionuclide Impact Assessment (RIA) in Bintulu Sarawak

I've been appointed as Geology and Hydrogeology consultant to Asialab (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd to conduct a geology and hydrogeological study of a proposed smelting plant in Bintulu Sawarak.  The study involved groundwater modeling using MODFLOW computer software, description of the geology and seismic acitvity of the project site.   The study was part of the Radionuclide Impact Assessment (RIA) study that is required by Malaysia Department of Environment.
