Project DuFAULT

Project title: Characterization and monitoring of the Dubrovnik fault system

Croatian Science Foundation Research Project IP-2020-02-3960

 

Head of the project:  doc. dr. sc. Josip Stipčević (jstipcevic[at]gfz.hr)

Faculty of Science

University of Zagreb

 

Project duration: 15.01.2021. – 15.01.2025.

 

 

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. Analyzes 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.
