Title of the thesis: Studying the Geophysical and Geological Environment of Earthquakes and Deterministic Seismic Hazard of Debrecen (Hungary) Using Geographic Information System Tools /Results of the Ph.D. thesis/

Field of research

  • Construction of seismotectonical GIS for Hungary

  • Refining and supplementing the Map of Kinematic and Earthquake Epicentres [Jámbor et al. 1999]

  • Spatial analyses in our seismotectonical GIS (investigating the relationship between specific geological and geophysical structures and the distribution of earthquake epicentres)

  • Hypocentre relocation by HYPOINVERSE-2000 taking into account the special velocity structure of deep sedimentary basins

  • Deterministic seismic hazard computations for Hungarian test sites by applying hybrid method [Panza et al. 2000]

  • Seismic risk map compilation for the city of Debrecen

  • Estimation of the upper limit of prehistoric earthquakes using the parameters of intact speleothems in Hungary and in Bulgaria
