Seismological Parameters and INstrumentation

Project description

Opening a new window on natural hazard forecasting

The capability to forecast natural hazards can save lives, and it has been greatly improved by scientific and technological advances. Scientists study the seismic waves that are generated by natural phenomena such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and oceanic waves. The study of this seismic wavefield, which carries the imprint of material it crossed, is key to understanding how the dynamic response of the earth’s materials affects our societies. The EU-funded SPIN project will incorporate emerging sensor technology to shed light on solid earth processes, interrogate the earth’s geomechanical behaviour and forecast natural hazards. The project will train the next generation of scientists to develop new views about the dynamic behaviour of earth materials and how to observe them with the revolutionary new sensing systems at hand.
