  • Generate a data set of major earthquakes: A data set of digital recording of the most important earthquakes in the Nordic region will be compiled. This data set will include both permanent and temporary seismic stations and will constitute a reference for the research training. This activity will take place in the first part of the network period.
  • Select the most important historical earthquakes in the region. And use the network website to facilitate the storing, displaying and dissemination of data related to these earthquakes. This activity will take part in the middle part of the network period.
  • Inspection of historical pre-instrumental key earthquakes in the region and preparation of the related materials according to the standards required today. This activity will take place during the whole project.
