A special issue was published of the TopoTransylvania initiative

A special issue covering the presentations of the “The evolution of the Carpathians – Dinarides – Pannonian orogenic and sedimentary basins system” (Conveners: Liviu Matenco, Mircea Radulian, Viktor Wesztergom)” EGU 2018 session was published. Liviu Matenco, professor of Utrecht University guest edited the issue entitled “Topo-Transylvania – a multidisciplinary Earth science initiative in Central Europe to tackle local and global challenges”.

The goal of the pinitiative is modelling the tectonically most interesting part of the European lithospheric plates, the Carpathian subduction, volcanism associated with the subduction and the effects of volcanic activity on salt tectonics in the complex space geodesy, furthermore magnetotelluric- and seismic tomography-based observation and modelling. Beside our institute the initiative has been joined also by the ELTE (Eötvös Loránd University), by the Romanian National Institute for Earth Physics, by the Institute of Geodynamics of the Romanian Academy of Sciences, by the Sapientia University, and the Babes-Bolyai University, as well as by the Utrecht University – the world-leading centre for lithosphere dynamics.
