EMSC Quake Catcher Network

Last update: 6 October 2014 at 09:43 UTC


Quake-Catcher Network (QCN) is a new type of seismic network based on low-cost accelerometers installed next or in to computers linked to the internet (Cochran, Lawrence, Christensen and Chung 2009). Any computer is a potential seismic station and could record earthquakes. 

  • The Euro-Med deployment

The EMSC has deployed a QCN server for the Euro-Med region to initiate, promote and coordinate QCN deployments in the region and ensure the interface with the USGS and Stanford University. Our strategy is to perform dense deployments in urban-seismically active areas. There are currently 2 such deployments taking place in Greece, in collaboration, respectively with Patras University and Thessaloniki University.

If you are willing to coordinate a new deployment, please contact us

 

                 

Deployments in the vicinity of Patras and Thessaloniki

 

Since January 2014, QCN stations were triggered by 13 events in Greece.
