Objectives of the CRL School 2018

    • Gather students from various Greek and foreign universities working together at CRL and with different background


    • In the framework of EGU-GIFT and EDUMED, associate school teachers and high schools to the didactic program and activities


    • Discover the research performed in Geophysics and Geology in the Rift of Corinth


    • Learn more about SAR interferometry (SAR interferometry, the SENTINEL mission, the Geohazards Exploitation Platform (GEP) and its application to CRL)


    • Learn more about GPS (theory, measurements in the field)


    • Learn more about seismology (with didactic tools) and learn more about the seismicity in the Corinth Rift


    • Learn more about sea, sea level, tsunami, …


    • Go on board of a marine geophysics vessel


  • Learn more about geotechical aspects of the seismic hazard in the area, the case of the Rio-Antirio bridge
Press Release for the School:
  • Document disseminated through the municipality of Nafpaktos to the media
  • Dissemination from the National Observatory of Athens
  • Dissemination from the National & Kapodestrian University of Athens
