Seismic Database in Support of Regional Monitoring Research in Asia


The Oracle-based regional seismic database modeled after the CSS 3.0 schema design and implemented by the Geophysics Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory has allowed for research on a wide range of regional seismic topics. These include surface-wave, propagation, magnitude calibration, and special event studies, location improvements, and discrimination enhancements. We have also created a subset of this large dataset to focus on nuclear test sites in Asia. Not only does the dataset provide seismological information for the nuclear test sites, it also allows for improvements in the detection, location, and discrimination of events near the test sites.
