The seismic networks, linked by a satellite-based communication system, monitor the tectonic motion in several earthquake hotspots within South and Southeast Asia, thus providing essential information for scientists to understand the earthquake potentials from these mega fault-systems on earth.
The CGO at EOS operates multiple seismic stations that monitor earthquakes and volcanic activities in real time and that can be linked with our cGPS stations. EOS works closely with other research institutes in Southeast Asia, including Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), Center of Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (CVGHM) to operate the GPS and the seismic monitoring arrays. In the international collaboration, EOS provides important information about the current tectonic and volcanic activities, and receives a solid support from these research institutes to understand the regional earthquake and volcanic-related hazards.
The CGO at EOS is fully capable of designing the seismic station, installing and maintaining the station, as well as operating the network and processing the data.
