Salvatore Lorenc Bushati
is born in Albania in 1950. After
the completion of the Elementary School, he followed the General Secondary School and the Polytechnic Secondary School
(branch of Electronics). After following some courses in
different fields, he was admitted in Tirana University and
in 1975 was graduated as Geophysical Engineer.
In 1974 he began to
work at Geophysical Enterprise as operator and after that
as geophysical engineer. In 1975 he began his first studies
applying for the first time geophysical methods in searching
the chromium mineral. A scientific and applied intensive
work was concluded successfully with important results of
scientific and economical value. Very important data were
gained through the usage of geophysical methods, which orientated
detailed geological studies as well as that of search-explorations
and explorations until the opening of the mines. Some of
these are now the major objects for the exploitation of
the chromium mineral in Albania Since 1977, he was appointed
as assistant lecturer in the Department of Geophysics of
the Faculty of Geology & Mining of Tirana, Albania.
In 1980 he created a new department, Department of Geophysical-Geochemical
and Environmental Studies in Center of Geophysical &
Geochemical Exploration (CGGE).
He is author of first
Gravity Map and Magnetic Map at scale 1:200 000 of Albania,
Gravity and Magnetic Network of Albania. He is membership
of a lot of national and international GO-s and NGO-s. Currently,
he is the Director of CGGE (Center of Geophysical &Geochemical
Exploration) in Tirana, which covers a wide activity in
the field of minerals, in different geoenvironmental and
health studies, in civil engineering and in many important
branches of economy.
graduated the University of Bucharest, Faculty
of Geology and Geophysics with the degree of Engineer in Geophysics
in 1974. He was employed as head of a gravity surveying crew
at the Prospecting Enterprise for Mineral Resources in Bucharest between
1974 and 1978. He worked in geophysical researches at the
Geological Survey of Romania between 1978 and 2001. Since
1991 he has
worked as an Associate Lecturer at the University of Bucharest.
In 2001 he joined the University of Bucharest, Faculty of
Geology and Geophysics as Associate Professor in geophysics.
He completed his Ph.D. in 1998 at the University of Bucharest. He has
published 35 papers and 2 textbooks. He is the editor and
contributor of the “South Carpathians” monograph (1998) on the geotectonics,
geophysics and geodynamics of the Romanian territory. He received
the Romanian Academy Award (1991) for his paper published in its
scientific journal. He is member of Romanian Society of
Geophysics Council. He is member of the Romanian
National Committee for Geodesy and Geophysics Council. He is
member of AGU, SEG and IAVCEI (IUGG).
Louis John received
a BSc in physics (1971) from the University of Athens, Greece,
an MSc in applied geophysics (1977) from the University of
Leeds, UK and his PhD (1984) from the University of Athens. In
1972-1981 he worked as a research associate in earthquake
seismology at the Seismological Institute of the National
Observatory of Athens. Since 1981 he is a staff member in the
Geophysics-Geothermic Department of the University of Athens.
He is currently a professor in geophysics and holds the
position of the director of Geophysics-Geothermic Department.
He has been engaged as main contractor with various EU and
national research programmes and his latest research interests
include seismic wave propagation, seismic modeling and
inversion techniques. He is now on the finance committee of
the SEG Foundation and is country representative of SEG Global
Affairs Committee. He is an associate editor of the Journal
of the Balkan of
member of the Editorial Board of the Research Journal of
Chemistry and Environment, member of SEG, EAGE, AGU and
a foundation member of the Hellenic Geophysical Union.
Miroslav R. Starcevic
is the Head of Geophysical Department,
Mining and Geology Faculty in Belgrade. He received a B.Sc.
in Geophysics in 1970 from Mining and Geology Faculty and
Ph.D. in the same area in 1985. He has been employed in Geophysical
Institute, Belgrade, Department of Gravity and Magnetism between
1971 and 1979. He has worked at Mining and Geology Faculty
since 1980. He started there as an assistant and later became
a professor in 1986 and an associate professor in 1991. He
