Whoa this was a cool signal. Magnitude 6.8 #earthquake near the Prince Edward Islands (South East of South Africa) about one hour ago (2023-05-21Z14:56). Signal on GEOSCOPE station G.CRZF (Port Alfred - Ile de la Possession - Crozet Islands: probably the closest open station at about 1000 km distance)
School Seismology activity book: https://namazu.unice.fr/pdf-cahier-sismo/sismo-collector-en.pdf is an English translation of a workbook from the French school seismology network. It looks very suitable for a secondary school / high school science club. The diagrams are still captioned in French.
Earthquakes: Cross-correlation detector in #ObsPy is used to match a template from one seismic event to a longer trace from a seismometer, returning events which correlate above a user-defined threshold. Applying this to
#RaspiShake RD884, in Constantine, Cornwall, UK at a threshold of 0.80, I have identified 33 separate events in a swarm of multiplets (or repeaters) from the last week, identical earthquakes produced repeatedly from the same source. 12 of the events from this swarm have also been reported by #BGSSeismology. The largest event has a magnitude of 1.7, so they are all very small, although the M1.7 event was felt at the surface. The #ObsPy tutorial I followed is here: https://docs.obspy.org/master/tutorial/code_snippets/xcorr_detector.html and
#BGSSeismology report the swarm here: https://earthquakes.bgs.ac.uk/earthquakes/recent_uk_events.html.
A M5.8 #Earthquake 14 km NW of Ciranjang-hilir, Indonesia at 2022-12-08 00:50:58UTC recorded at 109.3° away in SW England and Brittany on #Raspishake and #BGSseismology networks, in the core shadow zone. See: https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/us6000j7r0/executive. Uses #obspy, #matplotlib & #folium libraries.
Magnitude 5.6 #earthquake on #Java #Indonesia about one hour ago (2022-11-2ZT06:21) a little south of #Jakarta. There are reports of damage. Signal on station GE.BBJI (Bungbulang, Garut, Java) courtesy of @geofon and displayed using @obspy software. I hope that damage and injuries are limited. https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eventpage/us7000ir9t/executive

Surface waves from a M6.9 #Earthquake near Bengkulu, Indonesia at 18/11/2022 13:37:09UTC, received in the UK ~11500 km away approximately an hour after the earthquake on #BGSSeismology and #Raspishake devices. The frequency of these waves is shown on a plot from the BGS Elmsett seismometer. @PoLaRobs
Two tiny #Earthquakes reported in #Cornwall, UK, on 2022-10-25 in Penpol on the Fal estuary and 2022-10-26 near Portreath on the north coast. Responses were seen on the local #Raspishake network. See: https://earthquakes.bgs.ac.uk/earthquakes/recent_events/20221025184145.html#page=summary & https://earthquakes.bgs.ac.uk/earthquakes/recent_events/20221026192120.html#page=summary. Uses #ObsPy & #MatPlotLib.

A few weeks ago I published an #OpenAccess paper in the Journal for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament. I examine the #hydroacoustic network of the #CTBTO and find which data is currently open via #IRIS
and show processing examples. I want to encourage exploitation of this data. https://doi.org/10.1080/25751654.2022.2129948 (thread)
Magnitude 7.3 #earthquake offshore Tonga 45 minutes ago (2022-11-11Z10:48) - Normal faulting. Incredible signal at station IU.CTAO (Charters Towers, Australia, available via IRIS)
