|Abstract: ||The Local Earthquake Tomography of Algarve (Portugal), the main objective of this project, will permit
produces detailed images of the Algarve crust lithosphere and the mantle in terms ofseismic body waves velocity
variations (Teleseismic Tomography) or absolutes velocities (Local Earthquake Tomography, LET). Through the
LET of Monchique-Portimiio and Louli-Faro we expect to obtain a more detailed understanding of the structure
of the continental crust and provide a key for constrain the updip limit of the seismogenic zone in view to
determine the earthquake source areas and active fault zones of the Monchique-Portimiio and Louli-Faro
regions. The results will also contribute yet again to a better control of the seismic risk assessment of the region
under research. The study was involved the installation of a Portable seismic network consisting of 30 shortperiod
stations, including a subnet of7 telemetred stations, in operation since January 2006.|
