The Eastern Alpine Seismic Investigation (EASI) project is carried out as the first “AlpArray Complementary Experiment” by three institutes:
- IG Prague (Institute of Geophysics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Prague, Czech Republic), represented by Jarka Plomerová and Helena Munzarová
- U. Vienna (University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria), represented by Götz Bokelmann and Irene Bianchi
- ETH Zürich (Department of Earth Sciences and Swiss Seismological Service, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zürich, Switzerland), represented by Edi Kissling and György Hetényi and INGV (Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Roma-Genova-Bologna, Italy) .
The three institutes combine their mobile seismological pools to carry out a 55-station north-south array along ca. 13.4°E crossing the Alps, its northern foreland and the Bohemian Massif. ETH Zürich has agreed with INGV (Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Roma-Genova-Bologna, Italy) that INGV operates 4 stations in Northeastern Italy for this project. Of the other 51 stations 20, 8 and 23 are operated by the respective groups listed above. The array has started operation in Summer 2014 and runs simultaneously for 12 months; dismantling had started in mid-August 2015.
