(Seismological Research Letters, 2018)
A joint international conference of the Seismological Society of America (SSA) and the Latin American and Caribbean Seismological Commission (LACSC) will be held in Miami, Florida on 14 – 17 May 2018. The conference is the ...
Focal mechanism, magnitude, and finite-fault rapid estimation using the elliptical patch method in Chile
(Seismological Soc Amer, 2018)
Nowadays, most fast, automatic algorithms estimate the magnitude and location of earthquakes assuming a point-source approximation that might produce large errors in the predicted shaking. In this study, using a kinematic ...
The National Seismological Network of Costa Rica (RSN): An Overview and Recent Developments
The National Seismological Network of Costa Rica (RSN) is a joint effort between the University of Costa Rica (UCR) and the Costa Rican Institute of Electricity (ICE). In this article, we briefly describe its history, ...
Neotectonics, seismology and paleoseismology
This chapter focuses on the neotectonics of Argentine–Chilean Patagonia and overviews the active tectonics of the southernmost region of South America, which constitutes a field of relatively recent development on a national ...
The Brazilian Seismographic Integrated Systems (BRASIS): Infrastructure and data management
In geophysics and seismology, raw data need to be processed to generate useful information that can be turned into knowledge by researchers. The number of sensors that are acquiring raw data is increasing rapidly. Without ...
