Abstract

Knowledge of the Earth’s structure and dynamics calls for a multi-disciplinary study that makes use of the most advanced methods of Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Mathematics and Information Technology, in the framework, or in close collaboration with, the different branches of Earth Sciences such as Geology, Geophysics and Geodesy. The research to be developed includes subjects ranging from data acquisition, both with traditional techniques and with the most advanced resources of our time; data treatment and processing; to the development of new modelling methodologies for the simulation and reproduction and prediction of the terrestrial processes on a local, regional and, by far the most ambitious, global scale.
