Waves 4.0 now includes our eqFocus earthquake location & magnitude calculation algorithms in a free software package that anyone can use for educational or operational applications.
We have been using different types of sensors in our Gecko recorders to make all-in-one seismographs and accelerographs, but sometimes it is more convenient to have a sensor located in a different location to your recorder.
A new feature in eqServer is the ability to plot your earthquakes in Google Earth and play them back over time creating an insightful earthquake fault plane visualisation.
Choosing an earthquake sensor is not straightforward. There are dozens of accelerometers and velocity sensors on the market, and picking one that meets your needs can be confusing. We have used many different sensors over the decades, so let us help you understand them a little better.
The GeckoLink accessory enables direct-from-site SeedLink streaming using the power of a Raspberry Pi, and introduces a web interface for remote data visualisation, remote configuration, and data management.
Here’s an animation of the motion of a building, recorded on three floors during a magnitude 6.1 earthquake whose hypocentre was around 130km away.
The professional range of Gecko seismographs and accelerographs has been redesigned for 2020 to integrate existing and new sensor technologies in a smaller and more modular body.
What happens when you take an accelerograph to record laps around a race track? You get lots of data to plot and analyse, and have lots of fun!
Meet the first employee recruited by founder Gary Gibson. Russell left SRC after 3 years to work for the Qld Dept of Mines and UQ, but returned to SRC to run our Queensland seismic networks 20 years ago.
Like many of our staff, Elodie did her time on the data analysis treadmill, and is now a critical part of our earthquake hazard assessment team. You can find Elodie on Twitter: @borleis
