Integrated Nonseismic Geophysical Studies to Assess the Site Effect of the EUROSEISTEST Area in Northern Greece

Objective

IGSEA addresses primarily topics out of the main scientific area ENV such as Geophysics, Tectonics, and Seismology in combination with Earthquake Engineering, Engineering Seismology and building-soil & soil-water processes through the interaction between geophysicists and civil engineers. This project aims to assess site effects in the surrounding area of the EUROSEISTEST site by means of low-cost integrated nonseismic geophysical methods that are capable of detecting vertical geotectonic boundaries and fault zones with high accuracy and are able to confine and improve one of the first 3D resistivity inversion models of the area. The project will benefit from the use of state of the art devices and techniques which allow for a comprehensive view inside the inner structure of the basin. Through the implementation of hydrogeophysical and hydrogeological aspects we believe to significantly support the waveguide propagation modelling process of researcher and civil engineers in Greece and Europe who are working on strong motion data.
