Data Transmitting System for Seismic Network


For operative detection of earthquake location a data processing center is in need with digital earthquake waveforms from local seismic stations.

The system has been created in Uzbekistan and it consists of the following parts:

  • A local seismic stations equipped by seismic data logger, PC, GPS timing system and internet channel;
  • FTP-server has been installed at data processing center. After each earthquake event files have been transmitted to FTP-server using internet communication facilities;
  • From 8 local stations seismic waveforms are transmitted throw leased internet-channels. From other stations all data can be sent by using dial-up connection on the request from data processing center or one time per day or after strong earthquakes immediately.

Innovative Aspect and Main Advantages

The main innovative aspects of the system are:

  • The data exchange with leading seismological research centers (IRS,EMCS,GEOFON);
  • On the short future tuning the system for earthquake has automatic location (EarthWorm, USGS or Seis-Comp, GFZ, Potsdam, Germany);
  • Creation web-site fast information’ for public about strong earthquakes.

Areas of Application

Stage of Development

The modern seismic network with data transmitting system has been established. The data format (SAC, SEED, MiniSEED, PSN) is used on the leading seismological word centers.

Uzbekistan’s network involved to Project GEM (Global Earthquake Monitor, GFZ, Potsdam, Germany) - a few of seismic stations will be used for Central Asia seismic monitoring system with automatic earthquakes location by “SeisComp” software.
