The lab has been founded as a separate
department in the Geological Institute in order to provide
earthquake geology study in Bulgaria. Active faults are studied
by wide variety of approaches of geology, geophysics, and
geomorphology. The lab composes regional sesmotectonic models
based on neothectonic and Holocene evolution. In the last years,
the lab performs studies in the field of paleoseismology including
study on earthquake records in caves. The
lab estimates parameters of active faults for the
purposes of seismic hazard assessment.
In addition to the main activities, we explore subsurface structure and soil by resistivity and IP measurements along with by hand boring.
Assoc.Prof. Marlena Yaneva, Ph.D.
Co-operation in all fields of seismotectonics and neotectonics; services rendered in all aspects of seismic zonation, neotectonic and seismotectonic evaluation of seismic hazard, etc.
