Earthquake Engineering and Seismic Risk

The Seismology, Seismic Hazard and Signal Processing in Natural Phenomena group has his origins in the year 1993 with the set up of the Alicante micro-sismicity network.

The constant effort realised by the network in the use of new acquisition technologies, transmission and signal processing has favored the set up of determinate investigation lines to a better known of the seismic phenomena in this zone, the annual taxes of seismicity and his space distribution, as well as the answer of the soil in front of seismic events.

Inside his works, highlights the study development on the seismic dangerousness in the Valencian Community inside the different research projects that have developed for the Generalitat. Also they collaborate with international centres like NORSAR (Norway) and GFZ-Postdam (Germany).
