Introducing the Public Seismic Network, PSN


The Public Seismic Network (PSN) is dedicated to promoting public awareness and providing information about earthquakes. It was set up in 1990/91 by a group of enthusiasts in California. It is now a worldwide group which connects amateur seismologists, persons interested in earthquakes and seismic activity with information resources; from general history to detailed plans for constructing monitoring instruments and systems.

The network numbers some 111 stations (see the map at. http://www.sydneystormcity.com/map.htm)
Membership is free to anyone with an interest in the subject and an online forum is in place to exchange ideas on technical and earth-science related topics. A database is maintained where members may post event-data captured by their systems. www.seismicnet.com/cgi-dos/event.exe
