The past twenty years have seen a revolutionary growth in the way
we monitor seismic hazard: analog seismographs were replaced by
digital instruments that are sensitive over a wide frequency band;
the digitization made it possible to group instruments in local,
often telemetered networks with centralized archiving of digital
Earth does not know about national borders, and seismologists have
spearheaded efforts to share their data. The growth of the
Internet has made it possible, in principle, to link data centers
all over the world. In fact, for some networks, such linkages have
already been established, and a mature system of data management
has grown in such large data centers as ORFEUS (Europe), JAMSTEC
(Japan) and IRIS/DMC (US).
This workshop is a major attempt to disseminate the experience
and expertise in seismological data management. It is directed at
managers and operators of seismic networks. We shall provide training
in the application of advanced database management systems, educate
participants on the scientific developments that form the basis
of modern seismometry, and give a short introduction to modern methods
of analysis possible with the current advanced instrumentation and
databases. We expect participants to come away from the workshop
with all the necessary knowledge to set up and maintain their own
database and to link their network to the growing global network
for data access.
Network managers are encouraged to make a brief presentation on their network.
In order to keep the workshop efficient, we will only admit a limited
number of participants. As we expect a wide interest, the organizers
will make a selection of the applicants from the preliminary registrations.
In this selection, we will mainly consider seismic network operators
or prospective network operators and, if necessary, avoid multiple
participation from one institute. We intend to inform each person
that has sent a preliminary registration as soon as possible on
the possibility to participate.
The focus of this workshop will be networks from the Southeast
will be given to applications from seismic network operators from
this geographical area.
There will be no registration fee. Further, financial support
is available from IRIS and the workshop co-sponsors.
