Determination of the Earth's structure by Local Earthquake Tomography method
Author: Josipa Kapuralić, PhD mag. ing. geol.
Knowledge of the Earth's interior is key to understanding geological structures and their relationships observed on the surface. In the last two decades, many regional studies of the European lithosphere have been carried out, while in the past ten years local geophysical researches have been intensified in the Dinarides. Recent geophysical efforts significantly contributed to the clarification of the crustal and lithospheric geological model in this region. This investigation is a continuation of geophysical studies focused on the Dinarides and its adjacent areas. The study area represents the boundary zone between the African and European plate, i.e. the contact between the Adriatic microplate as part of the African plate and the Pannonian basin as part of the European plate (Figure 1).
