Improving seismic network performances: from site selection to data integration (EGU2017 session SM5.3)
07 Sep 2017–31 Dec 2017 | Guest editors: D. Pesaresi, H. Pedersen, and C. P. Evangelidis | Information

This special issue of ADGEO publishes the proceedings of the EGU2017 SM5.3 "Seismic Networks" session. The number and quality of seismic stations and networks in Europe are continually increasing and improving; nevertheless, there is always scope to optimize their performance. In this session we welcome contributions from all aspects of seismic network installation, operation, and management. This includes site selection; equipment testing and installation; planning and implementing communication paths; policies for redundancy in data acquisition, processing, and archiving; and integration of different datasets, including GPS and OBS.

Project management in geosciences: systems and practices for high-impact research
01 Dec 2017–01 Jun 2018 | Guest editors: L. Cristini and S. Walter | Information

Modern research programs at national, European, and international levels are challenged by an increasing requirement for interdisciplinarity, societal relevance, and educational outreach as well as market-oriented applications.

Project management strategies need to adapt to these new demands and incorporate innovative, yet sound and coherent, project management practices to ensure the effective use of the project results for higher societal impact and public awareness.

With this special issue, we offer project managers from Europe and beyond an opportunity to share their knowledge, experience, and best practices for effective management of research and technology projects in the various fields of geosciences.
