Results of the project SYSPyr, in which Geocamb has collaborated in the work of seismic zonation from surface geology knowledge and geotechnical data, provide mapping of seismic risk in the city of Girona.
The SISPyr European project, funded by POCTEFA 2007-2013 Spain-France-Andorra , was launched in 2009 for a duration of three years, with the leadership of the IGC (Geological Institute of Catalonia), and the contribution of the OMP (Observatoire Midi-Pyrénées) and BRGM in France, and the IGN (National Geographic Institute) and UPC (Technical University of Catalonia) in Spain. The project aims at the implementation of a common data acquisition method for earthquakes and the management of the seismic crisis around the Pyrenees.
Geocamb researchers, David Brusi and David Soler, analyzed data from a set of 1530 geotechnical surveys to conduct seismic subsurface parameterization that helps to evaluate the impact of seismic phenomena in the city of Girona. The results of this study have already been presented previously in the 7th European Congress on Regional Geoscientific Cartography and Information Systems in Bologna (12 to 15 June 2012).
