Detailed geophysical and geological investigations to identify copper lead and zinc mineralization around Ambaji, Banaskantha district are in progress.
The vision of the institute is to understand the science of earthquake occurrence and use this knowledge to save lives and minimize damage due to earthquakes.
- Near real time earthquake monitoring through a dense network of broad band seismometers (BBS) and strong motion accelerographs (SMA)
- Modelling earthquake source processes
- Crustal structure and its relation to seismogenesis
- Probabilistic ground motion prediction, micro and macro zoning of various vulnerable zones
- Making recommendations for earthquake disaster mitigation
- Improve seismic safety and performance in built in environment especially in highly vulnerable urban areas through site specific hazard assessment
- Undertaking steps and efforts to communicate earthquake science to engineers and use the knowledge base for creating public awareness
- Quantifying long and short term deformation using active fault mapping, paleoseismology and tectonic geodesy
- Shallow surface investigations for resource exploration
- Earthquake precursory research through multi-parametric geophysical observations
