  • ORFEUS Wilber with Java Seismogram Viewer

    With the aim to obtain a certain conformity in user data access Deborah Barnes and Robert Casey, both from IRIS DMC, installed an ORFEUS Wilber version that presently runs on our Spyder® data.

    Further with the help of Anthony Lomax, from Geosciences Azur in Nice, ORFEUS also installed Anthony's Java Seismogram Viewer within ORFEUS Wilber to enable a user to inspect individual signals. This is presently an experimental version that may not work on older browser versions.

    Please, let us know if you have comments or meet problems in either ORFEUS Wilber or the Java Seismogram Viewer so we can improve.

    The usual ORFEUS web requests will be still operating.

  • Educational oriented seismology links: Seismo-edu

    Seismo-edu consists of links to Electronically available lecture notes, amateur seismology, popular seismology etc. Presently, this is under development, however, suggestions are appreciated.
