EPOS-IP European Plate Observing System – Implementation Phase

EPOS-IP aims at creating a pan-European infrastructure for solid Earth science to support a safe and sustainable society. EPOS will enable innovative multidis-ciplinary research for a better understanding of the Earth’s physical and chem-ical processes that control, for example, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, ground instability and tsunami. Our team is in charge of the development of a new service dedicated to ground-shaking models (update of region-specific ground motion characteristic models and access to up-to-date ground motion prediction equations valid for use in European seismic hazard assessment).
