Welcome to FLEX-EPOS wiki page!

This wiki page is meant for sharing information on the FLEX-EPOS infrastructure project under the FIN-EPOS umbrella. The Flexible instrument network for enhanced geophysical observations and multi-disciplinary research (FLEX-EPOS) -project is Funded by the Research Council of Finland. FLEX-EPOS consortium parties are:

  • University of Helsinki (UH)
  • University of Oulu (UOULU
  • Geological Survey of Finland (GTK)
  • National Land Survey, Finnish Geospatial Research Institute (FGI)
  • Aalto University (Aalto)
  • VTT Technical Research Center of Finland (VTT)
  • University of Turku (UTU).

The objective of FLEX-EPOS is to create a national Research infrastructure of geophysical instruments and multi-disciplinary geophysical superstations to be further utilized in separately funded research projects aiming at solving fundamental scientific questions in seismology, geomagnetism and geodesy.  

As part of the project, an Seismic Instrument Pool is created, maintained and operated in a national co-operation with four universities (Helsinki, Oulu, Turku, Aalto) and three research institutes (GTK, VTT, FGI). The greatly expanded observational capability will contribute to science by providing massive new datasets, observations and results, and strengthen and extend the role of FInland in the European Plate Observing System (EPOS).
