The aim of this STREP project is to understand the mechanically coupled, interrelated processes leading to the hazardous activity associated with earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides and tsunamis. To assess, mitigate and manage the risks posed by these hazards, existing and fresh data from multi-sensor surveillance networks and satellites will be combined within a time-dependent Geographic Information System (GIS). To harmonise data and methodologies for understanding geophysical processes across Europe. FORESIGHT will focus on four natural laboratories: Iceland, Azores, Alps and Turkey.
Institute's role in the project: Being Project Partner studying the Earthquake natural hazard in the Turkish natural laboratoryand landslides and tsunamis triggered by this hazard, playing the key role for GIS data harmonisation and coordinating with Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality being the end user of the project's achievements
Start / Finish Date: 11 September 2004 - 11 September 2006
