Seismic stations in Western Corinth Gulf

Seismic stations in Western Corinth Gulf

Joint project of the Charles Univ. in Prague, Czech Republic and Patras Univ., Greece. Scientific cooperation between the Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Department of Geophysics, and the University of Patras, Geological Department, Seismological Laboratory, has originated in 80’s. Since 1997 the two groups jointly operate seismic stations in western Greece. The stations are equipped with weak- and strong-motion sensors. Some stations have satellite connection to the Patras hub. One station transmits on-line data to the ORFEUS international data center. The stations belong to the Patras network PSLNET, which is a part of the national Greek network HUSN.


Geodetic observatory Pecný

The borehole broad-band (360sec) seismograph on Geodetic observatory Pecný

Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Department of Geophysics co-operate with Geodetic observatory Pecný. Since 2009 the broad-band (360 sec) Guralp CMG-3TD seismograph is instaled in the 60 meters deep borehole. The station GOPC is a part of Czech regional seismic network and data are sent continuously to the ORFEUS international data center also. Live seismograms from GOPC station can you found in Data -> Heliplots section and the automatic noise analysis generated by PQLX software is available in Data -> Noise Analysis.

The Prague's seismic station trip

The Prague's seismic station trip

The seismic station Prague is partly accesible to the excursions for students and people interested in seismology. Very popular are open days for students from high schools. During the "trip" people learn about earthquakes, how to collect the data, and see the modern and some historical seismograph.
