The workshop will focus on Strong-Motion Seismology and Engineering Seismology. Please save the dates in your calendars!
The overall objective of TCS Seismology is to establish sustainable and harmonized services in Seismology that provide access to - and interaction with - seismological data, products, and tools (services) on a European level.
In particular, the objectives of the EPOS TCS Seismology (EPOS-Seismology) beyond the current activities in the EPOS-IP project can be summarize as follows:
- Provide governance and coordination, including scientific and organizational oversight, of the EPOS-Seismology services and their interaction within EPOS and with the academic community, and secure the interaction with other stakeholders.
- Maintain close integration with other EPOS TCS and the ICS regarding interoperability and use of tools & services, data models and metadata formats, computational platforms and IT implementations.
- Operate the European Integrated Data Archive (EIDA) to collect and access all classes of seismic waveforms, including permanent networks, temporary deployments, strong-motion, ocean-bottom and structural monitoring arrays, together with advanced metadata (data quality metrics, station characterization).
- Provide the EPOS Seismology platform to collect, integrate, validate and distribute seismological products and information to scientists and other users, including improved access to information on historical (non-instrumental) and instrumental earthquake data, and develop authoritativeness concepts for products.
- Ensure open access to state of the art, authoritative information on earthquake hazard and risk, harmonized across Europe, including software, models, and best practices, to a wide range of stakeholders to support national and local seismic hazard & risk assessment; provide curation, validation and community coordination of reviews and updates of the underlying data sets and models, and build an interface to the Geotechnical and Engineering communities and services.
- Operate Computational Seismology tools and services as part of the overall Computational Earth Science infrastructure of EPOS.
