The attention in our media is attracted by earthquakes on the territory of our republic or in its vicinity, or by distant very intense earthquakes with tragic consequences. A stronger earthquake in Croatia at the turn of 2020/2021 and later an earthquake in Austria in January 2021 aroused considerable interest. Dramaturg MgA. Pavlína Válková from Czech Television, Television Studio Ostrava, invited prof. RNDr. Zdenek Kalab, CSc. from the Institute of Geonics AS CR, v.v.i. to talk about the earthquakes (1.2.2021).
