To retrieve data from the multidisciplinary HOTSPOT network, control that the data have all significant information relevant to their content and to the method used to assimilate them. The HOTSPOT center archives the data and makes the data and the accompanying necessary information available.
Prepare the existing network stations and HOTSPOT center in Iceland for adding new, multidisciplinary observations, from available sensors or observational tools provided by the participants in HOTSPOT, or sensors provided by other institutes or projects during the lifetime of the project. It provides necessary assistance in installing and connecting these sensors with the HOTSPOT center.
Participates in designing and creating environment and infrastructure of a very multipurpose observatory station, the HOTSPOT Station, to be installed in the harsh conditions of Central Iceland. It participates by testing the design at various existing SIL stations and in creating a prototype multipurpose observatory station at an existing seismic station which is operated near the center of the active Hotspot area.
To organize networking with various objectives: firstly by coordination of HOTSPOT, secondly for attracting new observations to make use of the infrastructure, thirdly by creating links to other European or international projects with the purpose to create new infrastructures significant for the research efforts that HOTSPOT serves on a larger scale.
