Geohazard prediction and deep mapping of earth’s crust

Work Package 4

Geohazard prediction and deep mapping of earth’s crust

Vision

To develop reliable methodology that transforms geophysical measurements into effective decision making tools for geohazards and for deep mapping.

What we will do

  • Introduce new measurement concepts of Fiber-Optic sensing technology to reduce hazards related to rock slope failures.
  • Process and analyse data by adapting supervised and unsupervised classifiers.
  • Develop effective decision making strategies towards e.g. closing or re-opening road or tunnel sections.
  • Collect and combine earthquake, seismic and electromagnetic data from across mid-oceanic ridges to better understand prospection for deep-sea minerals.
