Abstract

   Researchers from NBT traveled with Satun Geopark. Mahidol University and Department of Mineral Resources Conduct a survey Samples were collected and classified into 2 caves found in the Satun Geopark, namely Tham Le Setgodon. Which focuses on studying a variety of mold And Tham Phu Pha Phet, focusing on the diversity of fungi and bacteria. Samples were randomly selected, such as rocks, air, water, soil or sediment, or organic matter, and classifying microorganisms by morphology, biomolecular and chemical taxonomy. They also analyzed the characteristics, types and types of rocks from Tham Leset Godon and Tham Phu Pha Phet.
