Research Infrastructure


Description The present GPS (Global Positioning System) network consists of 14 permanent stations primarily situated in and around the Eastern Carpathians. The main scientific purpose is to monitor surface motions due to earthquakes in the Vrancea region. The research program was initiated by the University of Bucharest (UB) in collaboration with the National Institute for Earth Physics (NIEP), Delft University of Technology (TUD) and Utrecht University in the Netherlands. The initial funding was provided by ISES (Netherlands Research Center for Integrated Solid Earth Science). Data are available starting 1 January 2012 under the agreement between the institutions. The network is located at sites with stable monuments for the fixed GPS antennas and the data are recorded continuously. At present, most stations provide real-time data via communication links to NIEP. The stations are located at: Bicaz (BICA), Bucegi (BUCE), Buzias (BUZE), Carcaliu (CALI), Colonesti (COTI), Jugureni (JUNI), Magurele (MARE), Mangalia (MALI), Muntele Rosu (ROSU), Rosia Montana (ROSP), Targusor (TIRR), Tirgu Ocna (TINA), Tudor Vladimirescu (VLAD) and Plostina (VRAP) – see the map. All stations are equipped with Leica LEIAT504 or LEIAR10 choke ring antennas, including radomes, and the receivers are a mix of Leica CRS1000 and GRX1200 systems.
