The Seismological Information Display - Temelin and Dukovany
is run by the Institute of Physics of the Earth
, Faculty of Science, Masaryk University, Brno,
Czech Republic for the CEZ Group
, operator of two Czech NPPs – Temelin and Dukovany. The Display started in 2002 as a contribution to the Melk Process
, negotiations between the Czech and
the Austrian governments. It was designed to inform the public, state organizational units and local authorities on effects of earthquakes in the locality and the surroundings of Temelin NPP. This task is
performed by using data from a local seismological network which has been operated by the Institute of Physics of the Earth around Temelin NPP for detailed seismological monitoring since 1992. Information about
the most significant earthquakes back to 1992 was added to the display.
In 2015 the Display was extended for Dukovany NPP, which has also been since the end of 2014 monitored by a local seismological network operated by the Institute of Physics of the Earth.
All earthquakes published on the Display have been manually reviewed by a seismologist, with special emphasis on their impact on the localities of the NPPs.
The range of earthquakes published on the Seismological Information Display Temelin and Dukovany is given by their significance for the localities of the Czech nuclear power plants and cannot represent a complete earthquake catalogue for Central Europe.
