Project DuFAULT

Project title
Characterization and monitoring of the Dubrovnik fault system – DuFAULT
Croatian Science Foundation Research Project IP-2020-02-3960


Head of the project

Faculty of Science
University of Zagreb


Project duration
15 February 2021 – 15 February 2025


Project summary

The main aim of this project is to explore the Dubrovnik fault system, one of the most seismically active regions in Croatia and one of the most active areas in Europe. Setting up a dense temporary network of seismographs along with a detailed analysis of recent seismic activity and important historical earthquakes, will improve the earthquake location accuracy and help us better understand the seismicity of the area. Analyses of previous geophysical and geological investigations as well as the application of new seismological and geological methods will enable the exploration of fault systems and the creation of high-resolution lithosphere models and earthquake simulation, which will indicate expected ground motion for future earthquakes and help us understand the seismic waves propagation through this area.
