The project is characterized by purposeful use of today's scientific knowledge about the dynamic activities of the Earth and applied research and practical use of fault groundwater accumulation in a tight regime for indications of volume changes due to seismic activity of the Earth.

The artesian groundwater accumulation, especially at the turning slopes of the Bohemian Massif in the valleys filled with the youngest sediments of Alpine age and the Czech Cretaceous Basin are etallons of earthquakes expressions in the Czech Republic that may be caused by tsunami in coastal countries. A devastating tsunami, according to scientists from all continents, is consequence of tectonic earthquakes with foci near or at the site of subduction or shear movements of continental plates under the sea.

For extremely destructive tsunami due to undersea earthquake in the Indian Ocean off the island of Sumatra, scientists have calculated sweep the earth's axis and changing levels in the world's oceans by 1 mm.

The closer to devastating outbreaks of tectonic earthquakes the more easily the current warning system can be optimized.

As an example of the usability of underground hydrosphere for these objectives include the island country of Sri Lanka. A devastating tsunami hit the island after 3 hours after the devastating earthquake in the Indian Ocean. Warning against this risk was technically possible to send from the Czech Republic 16 minutes later had been recorded.

In today's technical possibilities, underground hydrosphere is technically and economically most acceptable indicator of dynamic Earth activities with negative impact to human society. Verification and data correlation assesment methods with etallon measurement points in the Czech Republic can thus predict the possibility of relative movement of tectonic plates thereby creating a tsunami. This is a completely unique Czech know-how.
