Seismological data

Seismological data are records of ground motion expressed in velocity (velocimetric stations) or acceleration (accelerometer stations). The recordings are taken from both permanent stations for long-term seismicity monitoring and from temporary stations deployed during campaigns to study a particular area more precisely.

Since 2017 as part of the specific SisMob action, Résif has also acquired a park of “node” type seismometers allowing dense sensor deployments over short periods of time.

The seismology.resif.fr data portal allows to explore the inventory of data and metadata made available by the Résif seismological data center. The format of the data, the metadata and the access interfaces are compliant with the international standards established by the Federation of Digital Seismograph Networks (FDSN).

All data managed by Résif follow the FAIR guidelines to enable automatic discovery, accessibility, interoperability and reusability.

This portal distributes waveforms in the standard miniSEED exchange format via webservices or rsync-type protocols for large volumes of data. Metadata are available in FDSN StationXML 1.1 format.
