Multi- Parametric Geophysical Observatories (MPGO)

Objective:

  •  Building high quality geophysical database.
  •  Monitoring pre-, co- and post-seismic changes associated with an earthquake.
  •  Developing physical models of earthquake generation processes, energy sources, its distribution and decay pattern.
  •  MPGO aims at providing an integrated approach in the field of earthquake prediction. 

Method:- Continuous recording of several geophysical parameters (magnetic, gravity, geodetic, seismic, strain, hydrological, radioactivity)

Seismicity in Gujarat

Announcement

  • ISR has started geophysical surveys for Geothermal Energy in Gujarat state. ISR has pioneered a technique of 3D MT imaging of crust. Geological faults and crustal structure have been mapped in Kachchh.
  • ISR is carrying out Multiparametric Geophysical and Geochemical studies in Kachchh for earthquake prediction research.
  • ISR has upgraded Gujarat State Seismic Network from 19 online seismic stations to 40.
