Finnish national initiative of the European Plate Observing System
EPOS is a distributed geosciences research infrastructure, formed from national measuring stations, data networks, international data centres and European headquarters engaged in the coordination of various activities. The aim of these distributed observatories is to gather information on and develop our understanding of tectonic movement and geological-geophysical processes in Europe, as well as the related natural catastrophes and other socio-economic effects. Nine partners are involved in Finland's EPOS activities. The main objective of the FIN-EPOS research infrastructure is standardize and harmonize the Finnish national data set so that they will be interoperable with the EPOS Thematic Core Services/ Thematic data centers. The second objective is develop a Finnish-language login page on which users are identified and their user rights for EPOS resources are defined.
