Active and passive Seismology


AlpArray is a European initiative to advance our understanding of orogenesis and its relationship to mantle dynamics, plate reorganizations, surface processes and seismic hazard in the collision zone between the Adriatic and the Eurasian plate. The complex oregenic system includes the Alps, the Apennines, the Carpathians and the Dinarides.
