Initiator: ASTRON Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy

eu  SNN

This project was co-financed by the EU, the European Fund for Regional Development and the Northern Netherlands Provinces (SNN), and EZ/KOMPAS.


From an organizational perspective, the Seismic Application falls under the Geophysics Application of LOFAR. (The Infrasound Application is the other application.) The Geophysics Application is part of the whole LOFAR program, and is equivalent to the Astronomical Application. The Seismic Application is carried out by three partners:

  • Delft University of Technology;
  • TNO Built Environment and Geosciences – Geological Survey of the Netherlands (TNO);
  • Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI).
