11th Congress of the Balkan Geophysical Society - BGS2021 virtual edition, 10 - 14 October 2021



The online edition of the 11th Congress of the Balkan Geophysical Society - BGS2021 will take place between 10th to 14th of October 2021.
The Congress is an event of the Balkan Geophysical Society, hosted by the Romanian Society of Applied Geophysics (SGAR), in collaboration with national and international partners, having EA_Tuesday, September 14, 2021 - 12_45GE (European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers) and SEG (Society of Exploration Geophysicists) as Supporting Associations.
The Scientific Conference offers a wide range of topics and invites contributions in various research areas, with the clear intention of providing the geoscientific community with the opportunity to share scientific knowledge and expertise, as well as to discuss the newest trends in the field of applied or theoretical geophysics.
The event offers the best virtual opportunities to attend sessions, meet exhibitors and provides a multi-disciplinary perspective on current practice and ongoing research in various topics:
• Earth Physics, Geodynamics and Seismologyuropean Association of Geoscientists and Engineers) and SEG (Society of Exploration Geophysicists) as Supporting Associations.

• Regional Geophysics and tectonics
• Near-Surface, Engineering and Environmental Geophysics
• Coastal and Marine Geophysics
• Energy and Resources
• Geo-Hazards, Climate Change and Rick Assessment
• Remote Sensing and UAV Geophysics
• Computing Technology in Geophysics
• Geoscience for Society, Education and Environment
• European Research Infrastructure for a Resilient Future
On 14th of October, there will be an EPOS Workshop introducing the participants to the EPOS European Infrastructure, followed by a practical training session on the use of EPOS Data Portal, focusing on its basic functionalities.

Understanding the complex Earth system demands integrated solutions. Through integration of data and services (including data products, models and facilities), EPOS will allow the Earth Science community to make a step change in developing new concepts and tools for key answers to scientific and societal questions. For example, by combining satellite and in-situ Earth observations we can model surface deformations and tectonic processes causing earthquakes.
EPOS aims to develop a holistic, sustainable, multidisciplinary research platform that provides coordinated access to harmonized and quality controlled data from diverse Earth science disciplines, together with tools for their use in analysis and modelling. This integrated platform will demand significant coordination between - among others - disciplinary (thematic) communities, national research infrastructures and the policies and initiatives they drive, geoscientists and information technologists.
Once the EPOS integrated services will be operational, this new infrastructure will further facilitate sharing the outcomes of research to produce new data and products. EPOS will then harmonize data and services and ensure that new data products are accessible to both researchers and users across wider society


EPOS, the European Plate Observing System, is a multidisciplinary, distributed research infrastructure that facilitates the integrated use of data, data products, and facilities from the solid Earth science community in Europe.
EPOS brings together Earth scientists, national research infrastructures, ICT (Information & Communication Technology) experts, decision makers, and public to develop new concepts and tools for accurate, durable, and sustainable answers to societal questions concerning geo-hazards and those geodynamic phenomena (including geo-resources) relevant to the environment and human welfare.
EPOS vision
To ensure sustainable and universal use and re-use of multidisciplinary solid Earth science data and products fostering state-of-the-art research and innovation.
EPOS mission
To establish and underpin a sustainable and long-term access to solid Earth science data and services integrating diverse European Research Infrastructures under a common federated framework.

What is EPOS delivering?
Solid Earth science is concerned with the internal structure and dynamics of planet Earth, from the inner core to the surface.
Solid Earth science deals with physical and chemical processes, which cover wide temporal and spatial scales, from microseconds to billions of years and from nanometers to thousands of kilometers. Geology, natural hazards, natural resources and, in general, environmental processes do not respect national boundaries, therefore seamless, trans-national integration of measurements and data is often vital for optimal research and related activities.
The Earth Science community worldwide has already begun to reap the benefits of integrated accessible data. The study of solid Earth is necessarily multidisciplinary and requires the access to data and products generated by different communities with different data formats and processing procedures. The understanding of Earth dynamics and tectonic processes relies on the analysis of seismological data, ground deformations inferred from terrestrial and satellite observations, geological and petro-chemical studies and laboratory experiments to investigate the chemical and physical processes occurring at depth. In this framework, the next generation of researchers must be able to use multidisciplinary data and prepared to collaborate for cross-disciplinary investigations. This is one of the key challenges for future research in all disciplines.

EPOS addresses exactly that and will help Earth scientists and others to develop a more holistic understanding about the underlying processes of Earth’s dynamics and will use this progress in science for the assessment of geo-hazards and the secure and sustainable use and exploitation of geo-resources.
EPOS will enable the use of research infrastructures and services across traditional disciplines. EPOS will not only provide access to a wealth of observational data, but also the data products to offer intelligible integrated knowledge and solutions.
The innovation potential of the EPOS infrastructure involves facilitating the integration and use of solid Earth science data, data products, services and facilities, based on distributed national research infrastructures across Europe. The ground-breaking nature of the EPOS federated approach relies on joining the capacity of delivering high-quality standardized and multi-disciplinary data, the involvement of ICT experts in guaranteeing novel e-science opportunities and the leverage effect of user’s engagement.

What is EPOS aiming at?
The EPOS overarching goal is to establish a comprehensive multidisciplinary research platform for the Earth sciences in Europe. The ground-breaking nature of the EPOS federated approach relies on joining the capacity of delivering high-quality standardized and multi-disciplinary data, the involvement of ICT experts in guaranteeing novel e-science opportunities and the leverage effect of user’s engagement.
EPOS aims at:
• representing a scientific vision and approach in which innovative multidisciplinary research is made possible for a better understanding of the physical processes controlling earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, unrest episodes and tsunamis as well as those driving tectonics and Earth surface dynamics;
• establishing a long-term plan to facilitate the integrated use of data, models and facilities from existing, and new distributed research infrastructures (RIs), for solid Earth science;
• adopting appropriate legal solutions to manage distributed pan European Research Infrastructures, securing on a common and shared data policy the open access and the transparent use of data, and guaranteeing mutual respect of the Intellectual Property Rights.
