Led by: Andrei BALA
Fields: Env. & Earth Sci.
Institution: National Institute for Earth Physics (INFP)
Scientists/Total: 3/4
Keywords:  Lithosphere; the crustal seismicity, seismotectonics.

Main research directions of the department are: Lithosphere structure at regional and local scale; Dynamics of the lithosphere by complex interpretation of the actual movements of the crust; New models at geologic and tectonic scale, having elements of the physical properties of the rocks, with direct application in seismic hazard assessment; Studies of the crustal seismicity and seismotectonics and assessement of the dynamic properties of the crust, in the case of a major earthquake.
In the last years several studies about the natural hazard at a local and regional scale were performed: Microzonation studies (local seismic hazard) of densely populated areas, with special view to Bucharest area; Seismic tomography of the main hydropower dams (Vidraru); Studies about hydropower dams employing satellite methods and subsidence of the mining areas.
