How does GPS enhance the ShakeAlert® EEW system?
The ShakeAlert Earthquake Early Warning system uses over two thousand seismometers and GPS sensors to detect earthquakes rapidly and alert people in the affected areas. The ShakeAlert System does not predict earthquakes. Instead, within seconds after an earthquake starts, the ShakeAlert system quickly estimates an earthquake's location, magnitude, and where dangerous shaking might occur."
