Understanding and quantification of natural hazards

Period2012 - 2013
Partners
Coordinator centre : European Center for Geodynamics and Seismology

Project background

For several years ECGS has carried out research activities aiming at a better understanding of the physical characteristics of earthquake ground motions, the improvement of earthquake early warning systems, research aiming at monitoring ground deformations using state-of-the art space borne or ground based methods, as well as several specialised workshops dealing with topics such as induced seismicity.

ECGS has also invested its efforts in developing a permanent seismic network for Luxembourg and the Great Region around (i.e. Luxembourg and neighbouring regions of Belgium, France and Germany), an infrastructure that was so far missing.

Furthermore, ECGS is deeply involved in the study of volcanic hazards and ground deformation mainly in Africa and in the Great Region. In the years 2012-2013, further studies were carried out, in particular with the aim of gaining insights into the magmatic system of Nyiragongo volcano.
