Strong Motion data for the 2016-08-24 Mw 6.2 earthquake in Italy

ORFEUS provides access to Strong Motion Portals to query earthquake information, peak ground motion parameters and response spectral amplitudes:

  • automatically within minutes after an earthquake with magnitude >= 3.5 occurring in the the European-Mediterranean region through the Rapid Raw Strong Motion (RRSM)
  • from manually reviewed and processed data in the Engineering Strong Motion (ESM)

The RRSM automatically collects and processes relevant waveform data from EIDA stations, within minutes after the earthquake information is provided by EMSC-CSEM. For the Mw 6.2 earthquake in Italy (2016-08-24 01:36:32), waveform data and automatically derived PGA/PGV values from about 90 EIDA stations are available here, together with data from the main aftershocks.

Manually reviewed and processed data for this earthquake and the aftershocks are available from the ESM here.
