About the Corinth Rift Laboratory category

The Corinth Rift Laboratory (CRL-NFO; 21.35°E-22.5°E; 38°N-38.65°N) is centered between the cities of Patras to the west and Aigion to the east. It is one of the most seismically active zones in Europe.

European scientists and engineers are joining their efforts to investigate fault mechanics, its relationship with earthquakes, fluid flow and the related hazards in the Corinth rift.

Geohazards TEP project aims to providing on-line tool to produce interferograms and advanced interferometric products. The NFO CRL is a test site for this project, with the ambition to:

  • test the capacity of producing routine products over the NFO area
  • educate and train students and research staffs
