Seismo-at-School in Nepal

Earthquake location tutorial published

Do you want to locate earthquakes? 

Seismologists use seismic data collected from at least three different locations to find the epicenter of an earthquake. The idea is to calculate distance and plot circles from each location and searching for the intersection point. The Nepal School Seismology Network data recorded by thirty Raspberry Shake seismometers installed in Western Nepal offer an opportunity to teachers, students, and anyone interested to locate local earthquakes that happened in and around Nepal. An earthquake location tutorial for education purposes is now published in the Bulletin of Nepal Geological Society. Click here for the PDF file.
