Earthquake-Prediction Research in a Natural Laboratory

Multidisciplinary European technology and science are applied in a common action aimed at progress in earthquake prediction research and at reducing seismic risk. The questions are where, how and when large earthquake ground motions will occur. Answers are sought by studying the physical processes and conditions leading to large earthquakes.

The PRENLAB project started on March 1. 1996, and ended on February 28, 2000.
- Prenlab-2 project started on April 1, 1998 ended on June 30, 2000.

The project ENV4-CT96-0252 nad EUUG-CT91-0536 is funded by the European Commission, Directorate General XII for Science, Research and Development, Environment and Climate Programme, (Climate and Natural Hazards Unit, A.Ghazi, Division Head, M. Yeroyanni, Scientific Officer).
