Singapore does not have a single agency investigating the various aspects of its geology. Various organizations investigate those aspects of geology that affect their activities. Since 1981 the developments in geology and related earth sciences came about as a result of either the continuing activities of relevant agencies, e.g. offshore geophysical surveys by the Port of Singapore Authority, or the problems and investigations ensuing from developments within the country, e.g. collection of geotechnical information by the Mass Rapid Transit Corporation. This paper will describe the developments in various aspects of geology and related earth sciences in Singapore since 1981. A summary of the activities of the various organizations and the information they collected since 1981 is first presented.
