Participation in the Quake-Catcher Network

The Institute of Structural Analysis and Dynamics is now a member of the Quake-Catcher Network initiated by the Stanford University (USA). The network is a joint effort for developing the biggest interconnected system that measures earthquakes and vibrations. The Quake-Catcher Network strives to contribute to a better understanding of earthquakes. It is used for research, as a rapid warning system, support of existing emergency systems and disaster control and much more.
