The aim of the European Station Book portal is to set up a unique and reliable international registry of broadband and strong motion stations. Such a registry does not exist so far and has an important role to serve the accelerometric data community, seismologists and engineers. The information can range from basic details such as location and names to acquisition chain description, morphology of the installation site or velocity profiles.
The Station Book interface provides information of all stations that are part of the European Integrated Data Archive (EIDA). This information is gathered from two different sources:
Specifically, the following data is shown in the Station Book interface:
|EIDA Standard Metadata||Edited by Network Operators|
|Region, Institutions, Archive and Description||Ownership|
|Type, Class and Restriction||Pictures|
|Location||Ground type EC8|
|Time Frame||Vs 30|
|Name, Affiliation, Country and Description||f0 and Amp(f0)|
|Class and Restriction||Basin Flag|
|Sensor Location||Groundwater Depth|
|Location||Borehole Depth and Bedrock Depth|
|Time frame||Geology of Borehole Layers|
|Time Frame||Building details|
The Station Book interface is a beta version and the contained data has not been verified. ORFEUS declines any responsibility from any improper use of the information therein represented.
All data within the European Station Book are subject to the EIDA disclaimer.
The Station Book interface was designed and implemented by ORFEUS Data Center (ODC) and ETH Zurich, using funding from NERA. The schema of the SeisComP3's database extension for Station Book was designed by ETH Zurich. The UML data model of this extension can be downloaded here: Station Characterization / Site Characterization.
A significant re-design using open source software was possible by funding from SERA (http://www.sera-eu.org/en/home/; EU H2020 grant agreement No. 730900).
SeisComP3 is an earthquake monitoring software developed by GFZ Potsdam and Gempa GmbH, largely used in Europe and worldwide.
The EIDA data access portal (WebDC3) is developed at GFZ Potsdam.
