May 2021: Passive seismic measurements were performed along 3 profiles in the vicinity of the Miresu Mare village, Maramures County. The measurements were performed with the purpose to retrieve body wave reflections and surface waves from ambient seismic noise processing. Images from the field can be found in the Gallery Section.

April 2021: Assoc. Prof. Ionelia Panea and her colleagues had a presentation at the European Geoscience Union 2021 about A multidisciplinary study for geothermal energy sources identification in the Baia Mare area (Romania) funded through the Norway Grants mechanism, UEFISCDI. The poster can be found in the Work Plan Section – WP2 of the website.

March 2021: A positive response was received from the Maramures County Division of Culture, Minister of Culture, regarding the performing of geophysical measurements along three profiles located in the Miresu Mare – Satulung – Farcasa – Remetea Chioarului and Sacalaseni, Maramures County (read here).

December 2020: Assoc. Prof. Ionelia PANEA had a working meeting with the mayor and the local councillor of Miresu Mare, a commune in Maramures County, in which she presented the main goals of the research project Geothermal energy sources identification after joint interpretation of geo-data from the Baia Mare area (Romania), funded thorugh the Norway Grants mechanism, UEFISCDI. A research agreement with the University of Bucharest was signed by the mayor to provide support for the geological, geophysical, geochemical and hydrogeological measurements and investigations that will be performed in the Miresu Mare area.

December 2020: Prof. Carmen GAINA and her colleagues had a presentation at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting 2020 about the Subsurface geothermal potential of the Baia Mare region (Romania), as part of the project Geothermal energy sources identification after joint interpretation of geo-data from the Baia Mare area (Romania), funded thorugh the Norway Grants mechanism, UEFISCDI. The poster can be found in the Work Plan Section – WP1 of the website.

October 2020: Dr.Cezar IACOB joined to the research team of the project Geothermal energy sources identification after joint interpretation of geo-data from the Baia Mare area (Romania), funded through the Norway Grants mechanism, UEFISCDI. Cezar studied geophysics at the University of Bucharest, Faculty of Geology and Geophysics, graduating with an engineering diploma in 2008. He continued the post-graduate studies at the same faculty, obtaining a PhD diploma in Geophysics in 2012, with a thesis called “Geoelectric, magnetic and seismic investigations on tailing ponds in Romania”. He worked for 10 years in research at the University of Bucharest, being part of multiple interdisciplinary projects. More info can be found in his CV from the Project Team Section of the website. In the project, Cezar will be involved in the seismic and magnetotelluric measurements performed in order to provide information about the deep geological structure in the study area.

October 2020: PhD student Catalin Florin BOUARU joined to the research team of the project Geothermal energy sources identification after joint interpretation of geo-data from the Baia Mare area (Romania), funded through the Norway Grants mechanism, UEFISCDI. Catalin studied geophysics at the University of Bucharest, Faculty of Geology and Geophysics, graduating with an engineering diploma in 2009. He continued his Master studies at the same faculty, graduating in 2010. He works for PROSPECTIUNI S.A. since 2009. More info can be found in his CV from the Project Team Section of the website. In the project, his tasks will be to design, record and process active and passive seismic data in order to unravel the subsurface structural geology and to identify water-bearing formations in the study area.
