MOSAIC ITN-EJD Project Summary

This ITN-EJD gathers universities and institutions from five countries, France, Greece, Czech Republic, Italy, Bulgaria, collaborating in the Corinth Rift Laboratory (, one of the EPOS Near Fault Observatories. The training network covers the various aspects of Geodesy already used for the research at CRL (GNSS, SAR interferometry, gravity) and those that we want to develop (sea level measurements, tilt measurements, off-shore Geodesy). Many of the techniques in use are evolving quickly from the technological point of view: GNSS with the arrival of new constellations like GALILEO and new positioning techniques like the PPP, SAR interferometry with several recent missions like SENTINEL, gravity with the development of new absolute gravity sensors based on cold atoms technologies, off-shore sensors for distance, strain, depth, tilt, gravity observations developed with a strong push of the industrials and also because of the need of more geophysical observations off-shore (e.g. for resources prospecting, meteorology, tsunami detection). The area of investigation for the ITN team is the « extended CRL area », which covers the NFO itself and the Ionian islands to the west. At such scale the partnership is beneficial not only for the NFO itself but also for the understanding and better assimilation of the boundaries conditions of the NFO, from the geophysical points of view (e.g. how the rifting process is related to the underlying subduction), and from the methodological point of view (e.g. in GNSS meteorology or in sea level analysis). The space observation plays an important role in this ITN, bridging the various work packages. The ESR involved in the ITN will have the opportunity to work in collaboration with several of the partner institutions, they will have the opportunity to do fieldwork in-land and/or off-shore. The ESR will also contribute to outreach activities in the targeted area
