TTZ-South

Teisseyre-Tornquist Zone South seismic profile

The project comprises an approximately 560 km long controlled source wide-angle reflection / refraction profile. It crosses one of the most important geotectonic structures in Europe, namely the contact between the East European Craton, the Palaeozoic platform and the Carpathians.
