IUGG Session J-S05 Infrastructure for seismology (FDSN)

Submission deadline: Februari 1, 2011

Lead Convenors: Gerardo Suarez (Mexico), Torild van Eck (The
Netherlans), Rhett Butler (United States of America)

Scope: The International Federation of Digital Seismograph Networks
(FDSN) is a global organization. Its membership is comprised of groups
responsible for the installation and maintenance of seismographs either
within their geographic borders or globally. Membership in the FDSN is
open to all organizations that operate more than one broadband station.
Members agree to coordinate station siting and provide free and open
access to their data. This cooperation helps scientists all over the
world to further the advancement of earth science and particularly the
study of global seismic activity. The FDSN also holds commission status
within IASPEI.
We encourage technical/scientific contributions providing an overview of
networks intending to become member of the FDSN, new transformative
developments at FDSN member networks and innovative technical
developments that have had a significant impact on facilitating and
promoting efficient transnational real-time data exchange. The session
will be accompanied by a number of side meetings of the different FDSN
working groups (see also
