In addition to our core tasks, the group is currently involved in the following projects:
Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) systems attempt to provide seconds to tens of seconds of warning before the onset of damaging ground motions during an earthquake. The SED focuses its EEW efforts on the Virtual Seismologist algorithm, a Bayesian approach to regional, network-based EEW.
The Project main goal is to improve the efficiency of
real time earthquake risk mitigation methods and their capability of
protecting structures, infrastructures and people. REAKT aims at
establishing the best practice on how to use jointly all the information
coming from earthquake forecast, early warning and real time
vulnerability assessment. The SED is largely involved in most of the Project's WPs. The Seismic network contributes to WP4 and WP7.
