This paper is an overview of the geological and tectonic framework of Bosnia and Herzegovina, recent geodetic monitoring within the country, and plans for future geodynamic investigations using GPS. The geology, tectonics, and crustal structure underlying Bosnia and Herzegovina are outlined. Geodynamic investigation in Bosnia and Herzegovina using GPS started in 1998. In the summer of 2000, a GPS campaign for the densification of the referenceframe network for Bosnia was carried out, and 23 points were observed. The data of the 2000 campaign have not yet been processed, but this processing is planned for the near future, and Bosnian velocities will be available for geodynamical research into motion of the Adriatic microplate or other regional problems. The complexity and richness of the geology and geodynamics of the region in and around Bosnia and Herzegovina merits further densification of the GPS network, which would have benefits for geodynamical research as well as hazard assessment and regional environmental protection.
