As part of the California Integrated Seismic Network (CISN) partnership, one of the primary means of distributing SCSN earthquake data to our partners and emergency managers is through the CISN display. The display uses multiple seismic network’s submitted data to continuously report any significant earthquake activity in California and additionally, the rest of the world.
The live feed above displays a continuous live stream of earthquakes originating in California and their relevant data. While the map is centered on California, the information displayed at the bottom and right side of the frame will often display the latest earthquake information from around the globe as reported by the authoritative network. For more information on global earthquakes above magnitude 2.5 go to Latest Earthquakes on earthquake.usgs.gov For more information on this week’s seismicity in Southern California visit our Home Page.
About the CISN:
“Advances in technology have made it possible to integrate separate earthquake monitoring networks into a single seismic system as well as to unify earthquake monitoring instrumentation. In California, this effort began in the south with the TriNet Project. There, Caltech, the California Geological Survey (CGS), and the USGS created a unified seismic system for Southern California.
With major funding provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the California Governor’s Emergency Management Agency (CalEMA), and the USGS, monitoring infrastructure was upgraded and expanded, combining resources in a federal, state and university partnership. In 2000, the integration effort expanded to the entire state with the formation of the California Integrated Seismic Network (CISN, see 2000-2001 Annual Report). To this end, UC Berkeley and the USGS Menlo Park and Pasadena offices joined forces with Caltech and the CGS.” – cisn.org
