The first Integrated Geodynamic Station of Hungary and Eastern Europe was inaugurated in Badacsonytördemic, at Lake Balaton in midwestern Hungary this Monday as reported by the website of the Eötvös Loránd Research Network (ELKH).
The Budapest-based ELKH Research Institute of Geophysics and Space Science (FI), the Institute's MTA FI Lendület (‘Impetus’) Pannon LitH2Oscope Research Group and the FFI Lithosphere Fluid Research Laboratory of the Faculty of Natural Sciences at the Eötvös Lóránd University (ELTE TTK) all played significant roles in the establishment of the Station. The opening ceremony was attended by Miklós Maróth, President of the Eötvös Loránd Research Network and Sierd Cloetingh, President of Academia Europaea.
The report says that on the one hand, the research is based on the Dutch-Hungarian-Romanian Topo-Transylvania cooperation, which has been ongoing for more than five years and aims to deepen the understanding of the complex geological processes in the Carpathian Gorge. The Carpathian Gorge is one of the most tectonically dynamic areas in Europe, including the highly earthquake-prone Vrancea zone.
Speaking at the event, Sierd Cloetingh stressed that the participants in the project are dedicated to better understanding the causes of devastating earthquakes by combining different geological methods and infrastructures in the countries. This is why the idea of creating the station was born.
