Geomonitorinig embraces a very wide range of Earth's observations carried out with different methods and instrumentations. The aims of geomonitoring cover a broad band of topics. They range from global to very local small scale aspects.

Our lab concentrates efforts to local hazard monitoring such as permafrost instabilities or glacial movements. To this end, the preferred instrumentations and methodologies are GNSS and optical image analysis. Further geomonitoring and analysis aim at the determination of regional deformation and tectonic strain build up in Switzerland or in Greece. A new field of research has been opened by high-rate GNSS measurements witch allow to geodetically determine the co-seismic deformations.
