What Else Can We Do With This Stuff? Using Seismic Instrumentation for Non-Seismic Applications

What Else Can We Do With This Stuff? Using Seismic Instrumentation for Non-Seismic Applications

In this session, special guest speaker Dr. Robert Nigbor will discuss the use of seismometers and seismic data systems for short-term measurements of vibrations related to construction, transportation, sensitive equipment, and experimental modal analysis.

This informative webinar + Q&A will be full of real-life case studies of non-seismic applications.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Earth’s Rock ‘n’ Roll – Measuring Rotational Motions in Seismology

Earth’s Rock ‘n’ Roll – Measuring Rotational Motions in Seismology

We all know that seismology is a science based on measuring ground motions using seismometers. This measures three components of translational motions. But is that all the ground does? No, there are other motion components.

In this session, special guest speaker Professor Heiner Igel will discuss new developments in seismic instrumentation – in particular rotation sensing – with applications ranging from earthquake physics, ocean bottom seismology, seismic tomography, volcanology, earthquake engineering to planetary seismology. The key to these new applications is optical technology making use of laser light and relativistic effects getting hold of the wavefield gradient related information.

This informative webinar + Q&A is a must see, focusing on concepts and results from innovative pilot projects.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Bridging Technology and Policy: The Case of Earthquake Early Warning Systems in the 2030 Agenda

Bridging Technology and Policy: The Case of Earthquake Early Warning Systems in the 2030 Agenda

Earthquake and Multi-Hazards Early Warning Systems (EWS) ) disseminates timely information about the eminent impact of hazards to the public, emergency responders, and managers in the public and private sector, providing time to implement emergency measures, including some automatically.

In this session, special guest speaker Dr. Jair Torres will discuss how recent international agreements such as the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) 2015–2030, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement, and the New Urban Agenda, have all recognized the importance of EWS in moving the development agenda forward.

This informative webinar + Q&A will focus on the challenges and opportunities of turning current technologies on Earthquake EWS into practice and policy.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Surface Wave Methods for Seismic Site Characterization

Surface Wave Methods for Seismic Site Characterization

Surface wave methods gained in the past decades a primary role in many seismic projects. Specifically, they are often used to retrieve a 1D shear wave velocity model or to estimate the VS,30 at sites of strong motion networks. The complexity of the interpretation process and the variety of possible approaches to surface wave analysis make it very hard to set a fixed standard to assure quality and reliability of the results.

In this session, special guest speaker Dr. Sebastiano Foti will introduce us to surface wave analysis and summarize the InterPACIFIC (Intercomparison of Methods for Site Parameter and Velocity Profile Characterization) guidelines published in 2018 and will provide some application examples.

We look forward to seeing you there!

DAM SAFETY GROUP: One Stop Shop for Dam Safety

DAM SAFETY GROUP: One Stop Shop for Dam Safety

The Dam Safety Group (DSG) provides the widest range of geophysical and seismic technologies to address non-invasive investigation, maintenance and monitoring of dams, embankments and levees.

In this session, special guest speaker Mr. Yuji Taresawa will walk us through who DSG is, what DSG offers, and how DSG matters, with special emphasis on how seismic monitoring and geophysical investigation improve dam safety.

We look forward to seeing you there!
