Accessing the databases of seismograms archived by the EduMed Observatory.

Seismometers continuously record, in a given geographical location, the speed or acceleration of ground motion according to the three components of space. This information is summarised in the form of seismograms. Sometimes these seismograms record the passage of seismic waves. Their analysis by seismologists allows scientists to define some characteristics of the earthquake (location, magnitude, focal mechanism...)

The EduMed Observatory offers access to some seismograms that are of educational interest. For each seismic event, a package of seismograms recorded by several stations is available. Download and display directly the seismograms with TectoGlob3D software, which can be used entirely on-line!
