  • The area of interest is in Central Greece  composed of the Central Ionian Islands in the West and the Evoikos, Saronikos gulfs to the East. The southern border includes the coastal area of Northern Peloponnese extending to the North up to the town of Lamia.

    North East 38.638079° 24.586631° - South East 37.227208° 24.175946° - North West 39.309062° 19.598937° - South West 37.812993° 19.271977°

  • Different type of in situ data is to be available for the Greek Supersite area. A list of in situ data consists of broadband and short-period seismic stations, accelerometers, campaign and continuous GPS, as well as digital elevation models
  • Through the Greek Supersite various high accuracy space data shall be collected through different times. Such imagery along with the ground based observations and their products will comprise a complete set of information for earth monitoring
  • The research objectives of the Greek supersite are:
    • --Long term monitoring of the area for mapping the crustal deformation and stress-strain regime, including time-varying patterns in an area that holds the highest seismicity in Europe.
    • --Perform updated seismicity relocations for the areas of interest, using the introduced calibrated crustal/upper models.
    • --Exploitation of the available datasets (existing and new) to obtain reliable empirical estimates of source, path and site effects for seismic motions in the Supersite area.
    • --Efficient fusion of the acquired earth and space observations in order to better monitor and understand the hazard sources.
    • --Exploitation of ground and satellite information to assess the risk in the Supersite area and achieve Disaster Risk Reduction and Quick Resilience.
