In academic year 2013/2014, the department continued interpretation of the data from passive seismic survey collected within the international scientifi c project ALPASS-DIPS, using a method of seismic tomography. Tomographic high resolution method allows a more precise defi nition of seismic velocity models, especially their lateral changes. Research carried out in the framework of the doctoral dissertation, and the results will contribute to a betier understanding of the Earth’s crust and mantle in the areas of northwestern Dinarides and the south-western part of the Pannonian Basin. A series of successful small studies has been performed, especially one regarding the research of groundwater where the electrical tomography is a fundamental geophysical method of exploration. The department is developing and applying magnetotelluric method. The data collected from the fi eld measurements will be interpreted in the forthcoming period. Concerning the geodetic research, the Department of Geophysical Exploration and Mine Surveying placed the fi rst measuring station in Croatia for Earth-breathing monitoring purpose, that is solid Earth-ti de. Displacements caused by microseismic and vertical ground motion caused by local or distant earthquakes are registered. This research is signifi cant due to the fact that, for the first time in our country, we will be able to determine the real parameters of the elasticity of the Earth and their deviation from the theoretical parameters, as well as the maximum Earth-ti de amplitudes for that particular location based on the measurements and registrations of time series while using precise stationary gravimeter. This measuring station was equipped in collaboration with the Institut für Physikalische Geodäsie from the Technische Universität Darmstadt.
One of the main prerequisites for carrying out research projects is a modern set of measuring instruments. Maintenance of the existing equipment and software for data processing and interpretation are provided through research support in 2013 at the University of Zagreb and the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports. Purchase of certain equipment was possible through the cooperation on projects with industry and the private sector.
The department collaborates with the industry since the development of geophysical exploration and mine surveys is impossible without the practical use in specifi c research projects.
Many graduates and other students participate in the before mentioned practical fi eld research projects, which allows them to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills. As part of these studies, all available geophysical methods are applied: electrical, electromagnetic, seismic (reflection and refraction), gravity and magnetic methods and well logging.
All of the studies were carried out in the framework of:

  • structural geological research
  • hydrogeological studies and exploration of drinking water in alluvial and karst areas
  • geotechnical and geological investigations in the construction of roads, tunnels, bridges and performing of other civil engineering operations
  • environmental research and environmental protection,
  • geodetic and mine surveying.

The department carried out geophysical research in the academic year 2013/2014 for Hrvatske vode, HEP, Dubrovnik-Neretva County and municipality of Samobor, Elektroprojekt, Darkom vodoopskba i odvodnja, Hrvatske vode Osijek and Varkom while establishing signifi cant cooperation with the Croatian Geological Institute.
