Developing existing earthquake data infrastructures towards a mediterranean-european rapid earthquake data information and archiving network (MEREDIAN)

Objective

Seismic hazard mitigation arguments has motivated a large number of European countries to invest in high quality digital seismograph networks in their countries. This proposal aims at coordinating these national initiatives towards a Mediterranean-European Rapid Earthquake Data Archive and Information Network (MEREDIAN) by improving the existing European infrastructure. The goal is to provide access to close-to-real-time and archived earthquake wave from data from most stations within Europe and the Mediterranean area for basic research, basic earthquake information for hazard mitigation and public information. New communication tools will be tested and new software tools will be developed and applied.
