Nordic cooperation


The seismological institutes and departments in Nordic countries have joined to form network for co-operation in seismic observatory practice, research and teaching. The network arranges the annual Nordic Seismology Seminar, maintains the Nordic seismic data base, coordinates seismic studies and arranges advanced courses in seismology. Each department and institute participates in the activities according to their interest.

Advanced studies in seismology in Nordic countries (NORDSEIS) is coordinated from Helsinki and it is financed by Nordplus and Nordforsk.
