One major unresolved questions in magmatic geodynamics is the physical understanding of the complete sequence of melt ascent from the asthenospheric depth to shallow intrusions (crustal dykes): The physics of melt ascent within the asthenospher is usually described by two-phase flow of melt within a rock matrix.
The project aims to investigate the processes which control the multi-scale seismicity of the Alps. We hypothesize that patterns of stress and motion can be quantified from the seismicity which is observed with unprecedented resolution by AlpArray. The observed seismicity will illuminate the structure of faults and their kinematics at depth, providing an important and unique link between surface deformation and deep processes.
The European Plate Observing System (EPOS) aims at creating a pan-‐European infrastructure for solid Earth science to support a safe and sustainable society. The mission of EPOS is to integrate the diverse and advanced European Research Infrastructures for solid Earth Science relying on new e‐science opportunities to monitor and unravel the dynamic and complex Earth System such as earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
