Real Time Earthquake Monitoring

Real-time monitoring of earthquakes in the Eastern U.S.

Lamont-Doherty is operating a 45-station seismographic network in the northeastern United States to monitor earthquakes and to mitigate earthquake hazards in the region – including greater New York City. The seismic network is operated with 50 partners of educational organizations in the northeast and is supported by the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program administered by US Geological Survey. See how the ground motion in this region are gathered in real-time by using the Internet, satellite and cell phone modems! The signals are processed automatically to detect and locate seismic events, and to disseminate earthquake information to emergency management agencies, news media and to the public.
