Geomagnetic measurements

Since 2004, the Seismological Observatory in Skopje has been expanding its instrumental observations in other areas of geophysics. In cooperation with the Department of Geology and Geophysics at the Faculty for Mining and Geology in Štip, Republic of Macedonia, a magnetometer was installed in the seat building of the observatory in Skopje. The data obtained were at first used in the joint research project of the observatory and the Institute for Nuclear Research and Nuclear Energy of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia, which was titled Exploring of the possibilities for creation of a network for earthquake risk assessment and short-term earthquake prediction in the regions of the Balkans and the Black Sea, 2005-2006. The data were further used in the international research project ComplexResearchofEarthquake’sForecastingPossibilities, SeismicityandClimateChangeCorrelations, acronym BlackSeaHazNet, FP7 MCA project PIRSES-GA-2009-246874, 2011-2012), in which thе observatory was one of the partners.
