Introduction

Since 2001 the instrumentation at the station has improved significantly. The absolute gravimeter FG5#215 has been operated since August 2001 and the superconducting gravimeter OSG#050 was installed in February 2007 at the Pecný station. The new instrumentatation allowed to enlarge significantly the number of applications in investigations of geodynamic phenomena tidal record spectra towards both higher (free oscillations of the Earth, long-periodic seismic waves) and lower frequencies (environmental effects, long-periodic tides).


The current activities in the field of gravimetry are following:


  • Global geodynamics
  • Regional geodynamics
  • Environmental effects on gravity
  • Establishment of gravity networks
  • Metrology
  • Microgravimetry
  • Gravimeter testing
