Partners – Research Institutes
The Geophysics Program of the department runs its own ~600 channel (cabled and 1C/3C wireless) reflection seismic instrument, a state-of-the-art 120-3C seismic landstreamer acquisition system, uses modern seismic processing and imaging software and develops innovative analysis, modeling, and multidimensional inversion algorithms for seismic, electromagnetic and potential field data, including e.g. airborne geophysical data and joint inversion methods integrating different types of data.
The program leads the H2020-funded Smart Exploration project and is involved in a number of other relevant international projects.

Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences
Since 2010 IG PAS has been deeply involved in integrating European infrastructure of anthropogenic seismicity, and currently is leading one of WP’s in European Plate Observing System IP Project, Horizon 2020. IG PAS plays also an important role in issues related to exploration and exploitation of shale gas in Poland, participating in several projects tackling these problems. Main activities on this area are focused on participation in Polish and European research programs.
University of Helsinki
Seismological structural studies of the Earth’s crust are the main research area of the Institute of Seismology, which is one of the four research units of the Department of Geosciences and Geography. The Institute runs the Finnish National Seismic Network, and takes care of seismological research and international seismological cooperation in Finland. The Institute has been an active partner in all major seismic surveys in the Fennoscandian Shield.
