The fieldwork include three major activities as shown on the map at right. One team lead the drilling of the first on many well transects. A second team installed two sets on compaction meters.  A third team undertook geologic fieldwork.  Finally, several members of each team did a joint field trip to explore the various environments of Bangladesh.  More details are available in the previous posts, with pictures and video in the Gallery.
