The rift of Corinth (Greece) has been long identified as a site of major importance in Europe due to its intense tectonic activity. Ιτ is one of the world’s most rapidly extending continental regions and it has one of the highest seismicity rates in the Euro-Mediterranean region. The western termination of the rift in the Patras broader area presents a major scientific and socio-economic importance, with many faults located inside and close to the city of Patras. The Corinth Rift Laboratory (CRL) project is based on the joint efforts of various European institutions to study fault mechanics and related hazards in the area which is also included in the EPOS as Near Fault Observatory of Corinth Rift Observatory (CRO-NFO).
ESA Geohazards Thematic Exploitation Project (GEP) aims to provide on-line tool to produce advanced ground deformation products.
On March 30 and 31 2017 a presentation of the GEP-CRL Pilot Project as well as hands-in for the GEP has been made with the collaboration of Ecole Normale Superieure de Paris, the National Observatory of Athens and Harokopio University at its premises. In the hand-in training of March 31st, 24 students and scientists were participated.
