   Greece is a natural laboratory by itself, exhibiting the highest seismicity in Europe and accounting for over 50% of its seismic energy release. The Seismological Laboratory has all the required technical equipment to fulfill the numerous and vital seismological and geophysical needs. Its constant presence, especially at emergency cases due to catastrophic earthquakes, is crucial.

  The Laboratory operates a modern digital telemetric seismic station network, ATHENET, which covers the area of Central Greece. Data are transmitted to the central processing station, situated at the Laboratory building.
