To All BurmaNet Readers,

If anyone has information on the following subjects, could you please
respond directly to Gary Watson at the following address:


Thank you, 
BurmaNet Editor
I am a researcher at the Disaster Prevention Research institute, Kyoto 
University. My research interest is coastal flooding along the coast of the 
Bay of Bengal due to abnormal sea-level rise during cyclones (i.e. storm 
surges).  I would like to find sources of information about storm surges and 
flooding in Burma.  I would be very grateful if anybody can offer 
information or suggest who I might contact for regarding the following:
1.  Whether there was any serious flooding or disaster caused by the 
severe cyclone that struck the northern coast of Burma on 2 May last 
year (1994) or the one in October or November this year..
2.  Obtaining data from tide gauges in Burma.
3.  Whether there are any scientists in Burmese universities or 
laboratories who are studying this problem.
Any information that you can provide would be very helpful to me in my 
studies, and eventually may perhaps contribute to reducing the effect of 
such disasters.
Yours Sincerely,
Dr. Gary Watson
Disaster Prevention Research Institute, Kyoto 
University, Gokasho, Uji, Kyoto 611, Japan
