Earthquakes occur when stress build-up in the earth’s crust exceeds the strength of the rock, but tectonic plate motion isn’t the only source of stress. We can change rock stress and trigger earthquakes to occur sooner than they may have otherwise.
What are faults, what do the different types of fault mean, and what has that got to do with the SRC logo?
When you feel the earth shaking, it might feel like the earthquake is right under you, but it’s likely that the earthquake started dozens of kilometres away.
How can an earthquake have a negative magnitude? It’s got to do with ground motion and distance, and how sensitive seismographs have become.
What is SeedLink, and how can you share your seismograph data with the world using it?

The magnitude MLv5.8 (Mw5.9) earthquake on 22 September 2021 at 9:15am local time was the largest to occur in the state of Victoria since record-keeping began around 200 years ago. The epicentre of the earthquake was located 127km from our office in Melbourne, and was recorded on an old digital…
We’ve updated Waves to make refining your earthquake location even easier with a new depth slider and improved mapping tools. There’s even a new sample earthquake from our home town of Melbourne for you to test your skills as an earthquake data analyst!
The GeckoLink accessory enables direct-from-site SeedLink streaming using the power of a Raspberry Pi, and provides a web interface for remote data visualisation, remote configuration, and data download.
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.
