About this page
This page is intended for downloading seismograph data for recent Australian earthquakes.
It is maintained by Eric and David Love of the Seismological Association of Australia Inc.
It requests data from networks:
Geoscience Australia (AU) via IRIS
Seismometers in Schools (S1) via IRIS
Raspberry Shake (AM) via FDSN
UniMelb and SAA via Eqserver software
Other networks via IRIS
It collects only seismograph data, not accelerograph and other data. For IRIS it does this by designating ?H? for the channel name.
If you have problems with this page, please let us know.
