   A monitoring network involves a multidisciplinary activity that highlights the interdependence of environmental factors (air, earth) and their balance under normal conditions. Weather or seismic events represent the point of maximum imbalance.
          Electromagnetic, infrasound, seismoacoustic, air ionization and solar radiation monitoring, in correlation with global and local environmental factors (including seismic zones), is a new approach for atmospheric study in our area. The result of this project is the growth of the seismic alert service through: perfecting risk evaluation, seismic forecast, informing the decision factors regarding the impact minimization of natural disasters and the education of the population.
  NIEP has a seismic and tsunami early warning service that inform the Romanian Government, the ISUs (Inspectorate for Emergency Situations in Romania and Bulgaria) and the Romanian Ministry of Defense.
    The analysis using cumulative energy indicates an increase of seismicity in Vrancea area. An earthquake cannot be precisely predicted but can be expected from the accumulation of energy which results in a release through one or more earthquakes.
