FDSN Network Information

FDSN code PR Operated by University of Puerto Rico (UPR)
Network name Puerto Rico Seismic Network (PRSN) & Puerto Rico Strong Motion Program (PRSMP) (Puerto Rico) Deployment region Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands
Start date Jan. 1, 1986 End date -
Network Website http://redsismica.uprm.edu/
Short description

The PRSN and PRSMP both monitor the seismic and tsunami activity -using a dense array of broadband sensors- and rapidly disseminate the location and size of all earthquakes in our Area of Responsibility (AOR). We support TWC to determine the Tsunami alert levels in the Caribbean and help to immediately disseminate this information to concerned agencies, media, scientists, and the general public. The PRSN compiles and maintains an extensive seismic database of earthquake parameters, continuous waveforms (earthquakes, GPS and sea level) and their effects which serve as a solid foundation for basic and applied earth science/oceanography research in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. The PRSN also promote the education and preparedness of our population to mitigate the effects of a significant earthquake or tsunami.
