Croatia was in year 2020 hit by two devastating earthquakes. First one hit town of Zagreb on March 22nd with a magnitude of 5.5 on Richter scale, and second one on December 29th hit the area of Banija (epicentre near town of Petrinja) with the magnitude of 6.2 on Richter scale. Both earthquakes resulted in severe damages and human losses. Already after Zagreb earthquake a great need for spatial interpretation of the event and its aftermath has been recognized. Therefore, after the earthquake in Petrinja, a quick reaction of geodetic experts followed, using modern satellite and geoinformation (GI) technologies to provide information on the aftermath of the earthquake.
Based on recent experience training has been prepared to share gained experience facing devastating earthquakes which are presenting real threat in many parts of our world and demonstrate usage of EO, GNSS and GIS technology for fast response in case of such disasters.
Training is organized during three days from 09:00 – 12:00 CET daily and theoretical and practical lectures wil be given by Prof. Željko Bačić, Assist. Prof. Danijel Šugar and Researcher Marijan Grgić, PhD from University of Zagreb, Faculty of Geodesy.
