Aims of the project


GeoMol - studied areaWithin the framework of the transnational project GeoMol, funded by the Alpine Space Programme 2007-2013, as a part of the "European Territorial Cooperation" from September 2012 to June 2015, partners from Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Slovenia and Switzerland will prepare data on the geological structures of the Molasse and Po Basins in order to serve transnational decision-making and to make them available also to the interested public. GeoMol will provide consistent 3-dimensional subsurface information based on coherent evaluation methods and commonly developed criteria and guidelines. Enhancing the common knowledge of the subsurface in the Alpine Foreland Basins will help to boost homemade, decentralised green energy by exploiting geo-potentials and using subsurface storage capacities. It also improves the geological and structural knowledge of the basins and supports the seismic hazard assessment especially of the Po Plain
