The AlpArray project

AlpArray is a European initiative to advance our understanding of orogenesis and its relationship to mantle dynamics, plate reorganizations, surface processes and seismic hazard in the Alps-Apennines-Carpathians-Dinarides orogenic system. The initiative integrates present-day Earth observables with high-resolution geophysical imaging of 3D structure and physical properties of the lithosphere and of the upper mantle, with focus on a high-end seismological array.

Seismologists from the Department of Geophysics, Faculty of Science also participate in the project with several seismic stations. For more information on the activity of Croatian involvement in the AlpArray project, you may contact prof. dr. sc. Marijan Herak via his e-mail herak[at]
