Dikes and sills are large sheet-like intrusions transporting and storing magma in the Earth's crust. When propagating, they generate seismicity and deformation and may lead to volcanic eruption.

A monitoring system and network for the future is a 26-partner project funded by FP7 Environment programme of the European Commission, addressing topic “Long-term monitoring experiment in geologically active regions of Europe prone to natural hazards: the Supersite concept”.

Natural hazards and risks are often assessed individually by scientists, engineers and civil protection authorities.

MARsite aims to improve the seismic hazard and risk assessment for the densely populated Marmara region by long-term, multi-disciplinary monitoring activities - both on land and in the sea - related to the earthquake generation processes.

The MINE project intends to develop and implement tools to monitor mining areas and underground reservoirs, by means of continuous time series analysis and inversion, modeling fracturing processes and stress field evolution on a very local scale.

The overall aim of NERA is to achieve a measurable improvement and a long-term impact in the assessment and reduction of the vulnerability of constructions and citizens to earthquakes.

REAKT aims to improve the efficiency of real-time earthquake risk mitigation methods and their capability of protecting structures, infrastructures and populations.
