The research infrastructure (hereinafter referred to as "VI") CzechGeo/EPOS is a comprehensive system of observation of geophysical fields operated by geoscience institutions in the Czech Republic. This system consists of permanent observatories, mainly connected to global networks, local stations in selected areas that are important for long-term observation for basic or applied research, and mobile stations used for temporary measurements in selected locations, usually related to the large international research infrastructures and projects. CzechGeo/EPOS enables user-friendly access to global and regional databases or repositories, including real-time remote access.
VI includes five thematic sections (the leading institution is given in brackets):
Section seismology (Institute of Geophysics of the Czech Academy of Sciences)
Section GNSS and gravimetry (Research Institute of Geodesy, Topography and Cartography)
Section geodynamics (Institute of Rock Structure and Mechanics of the Czech Academy of Sciences)
Section geomagnetics (Institute of Geophysics of the Czech Academy of Sciences)
Geological and geophysical databases (Czech Geological Survey)
