He will discuss how QCN will add to seismic data collected in Pacific County and enhance earthquake science education in Pacific County schools.
Quake-Catcher Network Presentation
* Friday, February 21, 11:30 am: Discussion with Robert de Groot, SCEC, at the South Bend High School Library, 400 E. 1st St.
The Quake-Catcher Network is a collaborative initiative for developing the world’s largest, low-cost seismic network by utilizing sensors in and attached to Internet-connected computers, led by Elizabeth Cochran at USGS – Pasadena and scientists at Stanford University. QCN sensors, such as the ones being installed in Pacific County schools, are citizen-science oriented and can be installed in homes, museums, and schools.
This event is being held in collaboration with the Cascadia EarthScope Earthquake and Tsunami Education Program (CEETEP), Washington Military Department – Emergency Management Division, Pacific County Emergency Management Agency, EarthScope, Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC), Key Environmental Solutions, and South Bend High School.
