Continuous time series of various type of geophysical measurements in Iceland will be made available to the scientific community. This includes continuous time series of electromagnetic MT-data in a seismotectonically active area delivering information on time variations in electrical conductivity in the crust and mantle. These series will be available on-line or on a daily basis for the scientific community and authorities. A sophisticated model of the electrical conductivity distribution is within the area of interest. The model will serve as a reference for future investigations of temporal changes of the conductivity distribution. Permanent installation of two gravimeters modified for continuous measurements and one additional gravimeter for a period of four years. Effort will be made to get access to additional gravimeters from other institutions for a long-term deployments at stations where continuous GPS measurements will be performed.
