Uzbekistan, Tashkent, Sep. 7 / Trend, D.Azizov /
Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) on Thursday gave a modern seismological equipment Turin Polytechnic University in Tashkent, the JICA office in Uzbekistan reported.
Equipment with a total value of 99.96 thousand dollars was given to the project subsequent to promote "seismology, engineering seismology and management policies for natural disasters".
It includes broadband seismograph to record a wide range of earthquake magnitude and scope, accelerometers to measure seismic engineering structures, manufactured by Guralp Systems Ltd, multi-node computer system of parallel computing by Hewlett Packard.
The equipment will be used for modeling of regional earthquakes and seismic phenomena at large distances, seismic monitoring facilities in the course of their construction, computer simulation of the dynamic response of natural and artificial structures during seismic loading.
New theoretical and experimental methods for the study of earthquakes, seismic instability monitoring and computer modeling of seismic processes that collect data in a digital format that meets international standards will be developed with the new equipment.
Based on equipment provided by JICA, the seismic station, unique in the breadth of range monitoring of seismic activity in Central Asia, was opened in the center of seismology and seismic structures at the Turin Polytechnic University in Tashkent.
It will give the opportunity to watch most of the seismic activities of the Eurasian continent.
