Project Details

Description (abstract)

In the FLEX-EPOS RI project a national pool of geophysical instruments and multi-disciplinary geophysical superstations is created to solve fundamental research questions in seismology, geomagnetism and geodesy. FLEX-EPOS comprises infrastructure and pool of instruments, which can be used in large numbers in various study areas for short- and long-term data collection. The instrument pool is created, maintained and operated in a national co-operation with four universities (Helsinki, Oulu, Turku, Aalto) and three research institutes (GTK, VTT, FGI). The greatly expanded observational capability will contribute to science by providing massive new datasets, observations and results, and strengthen and extend the role of FInland in the European Plate Observing System (EPOS).
