ORFEUS Observatories & Research Facilities for European Seismology

ORFEUS is the non-profit foundation to coordinate and promote digital, broadband seismology in the European-Mediterranean area.

EIDA is the European Integrated Data Archive infrastructure within ORFEUS to provide access to seismic waveform data in European archives.

European Seismic Networks and Associated Services and Products

The ORFEUS-promoted Focus Section on “European Seismic Networks and Associated Services and Products” has just been published as part of Seismological Research Letters Volume 92(3): https://pubs.geoscienceworld.org/srl/issue/92/3. An overview of the contents in given in the “Preface” by Cauzzi et al.

Please look first at the many interesting papers submitted by the seismic networks and observatories that constitute the core of observational seismology in the Euro-Mediterranean region.

Please also note the coordination papers on the “European Integrated Data Archive” by Strollo et al., and on the “European Strong-Motion Services” by Lanzano et al. And do not miss the discussion on “Large Data in Seismology” by Quinteros et al.

Enjoy the reading!
