Project description
We will create a national pool of geophysical instruments and multi-disciplinary superstations to solve fundamental scientific questions in seismology, geomagnetism and geodesy. We will develop and apply complementing geophysical monitoring networks towards multi-technique, multi-discipline solution using the full benefit of novel technologies. FLEX-EPOS instrument pool comprises infrastructure and instruments used in large numbers in various study areas for short- and long-term data collection. The instrument pool will be created, maintained and operated in a national co-operation between four universities and four research institutes. The greatly expanded observational capability will contribute to science by providing massive new datasets, observations and results, and strengthen and extend the role of Finland in the European Plate Observing System (EPOS: The FIN-EPOS infrastructure is on the national FIRI roadmap, and EPOS is on the ESFRI roadmap.
