11. MONITORING NETWORK TO BE
The experience which is obtained from the operation of the
monitoring sites in PYR, ATH and HIO, almost after 4 year’s time,
has shown that, preseismic, electrical signals can be detected at
rather large distances, of the order of some hundreds of kilometers.
Therefore, an evenly spaced network, allover Greece, requires
(taking into account the Greek territory extent) nine (9) monitoring
sites, the most.
These future monitoring sites must be located in such a way, so
that a group of three of them would comprise an array of almost E-W
direction. Their location is presented in the following figure
Monitoring network scheduled to be installed in the future.
The northern array will consist of KER, THE and EVR
The middle array is consisted of the already installed PYR, ATH and HIO monitoring sites.
The southern array will consist of CRW, CRE and ROD
After the installation of the northern and southern part of the
monitoring network (in the near future) the entire methodology will
be fully testable.
It is expected that the entire, monitoring network will be capable
to detect any preseismic, electric signal which will be generated,
from the focal area of any predictable strong earthquake, which
could occur in the Greek territory (and neighborhood countries -
Turkey, Bulgaria, FYROM, and Albania).
