Institute of Seismology at the Night of Sciences - 100 years of seismic measurements

The Night of Science will be organized on the 25th of January 2024. Institute of Seismology participates in the Department of Geosciences and geography's event at the main lobby of the Porthania building (Yliopistonkatu 3) between 5-8 pm.
Presentation point: Instrumental seismology turns 100 years!

Institute of Seismology participates the Night of Sciences as part of the Department of Geosciences and geography's event titled “Volcanoes, earthquakes, early humans and false information”.

2024 marks the 100th anniversary of instrumental seismology in Finland. Although natural seismicity in Finland is not a typical societal concern, measurements from seismic instruments have played key roles in assessing seismic hazards to nuclear power plants, identifying zones of enhanced earthquake activity, and global monitoring of nuclear tests. We welcome you to come hear about the history of seismic measurements in Finland, learn more about how we do our measurements, and find out about current and future research trends in seismology.

Welcome! All events are free of charge.
