CzechGeo/EPOS is aimed at establish and operating the national node of Pan European project EPOS. The backbone of recent observing system in the Czech Republic forms permanent seismic, tidal, geodynamic, geomagnetic and geothermic observatories. The system is completed with local networks and temporary monitoring experiments. EPOS aims to create a single sustainable, permanent and distributed infrastructure to achieve integration, increased accessibility and long term continuity and data archiving of geophysical monitoring data from networks in Europe and in the Mediterranean regions. Moreover, EPOS introduces an innovative strategy based on merging within a single but distributed infrastructure data, in-situ observatories and laboratory experiments and high-resolution and high-performance computational tools bridging the gap between observational and geophysical modelling by linking advanced simulation technology and processing facilities directly to the observational data bases. EPOS will thus create a strongly competitive European research infrastructure providing radically new conditions and new horizons for solid Earth science research in Europe. CzechGeo will contribute to and profit from the EPOS achievements.
