Overall objective of the Project:
The project fits to TO8 Common challenges in the field of safety and security Priority 1. The overall objective of the project is geomonitoring of natural and man-made processes in the cross-border territory with the aim of preventing of emergency situations. The project will integrate advanced techniques in new, coordinated and innovative ways in order to improve our understanding of land deformation (landslides) on Tyzsa River and its effect on the environment. The main tasks of the BME Department of Geodesy and Surveying are:

  • the determination of surface displacements (subsidences, uplifts) in the cross-border region using satellite radar interferometry and the localization of areas subject to significant vertical displacements;
  • development of a software for the estimation of the spatial and temporal distribution of atmospheric water vapour using GNSS tomography and the realization of an automatic atmospheric water vapour monitoring systems providing inputs for numerical weather prediction.

Implemented under the Hungary-Slovakia-Romania-Ukraine ENI Cross-border Cooperation Programme 2014-2020 funded by the EU.
