Dear FDSN Steering Committee,

We have received the following application for membership from the Instituto Português do Mar e da Atmosfera (IPMA), operators of the Portuguese National Network,, as well as temporary networks. Data for the PM network is shared via GEOFON and IRIS.

There are two other organizations from Portugal already on the steering committee

- Instituto Dom Luiz (IDL) - Universidade de Lisboa - formerly CGUL - operates regional network LX and has operated temporary networks 3K_2022, 8E_2019, 3H_2018, 8A_2010

There is a good overview of the Portuguese National Network here
