From observational seismology research infrastructures to science: case studies based on European coordinated waveform data services and associated products



Observational seismology has witnessed tremendous advances during the last two decades in Europe and worldwide. The establishment of the European Integrated waveform Data Archive (EIDA; marked a change of paradigm in seismic data dissemination in the Euro-Mediterranean region, facilitating automated large-scale access to open seismic waveform archives. The deployment of dense modern accelerometer networks has progressively blurred the traditional boundary between broadband and strong-motion (SM) seismology, dramatically increasing the amount of high-quality recordings and associated metadata available as input to engineering seismology and earthquakes engineering studies. ORFEUS (Observatory and Research Facilities for European Seismology) carries out since more than 30 years its chief mandate to promote and coordinate waveform seismology in Europe through the collection, archival and distribution of digital seismic waveform data, metadata and closely-related products. ORFEUS EIDA and SM ( services currently provide access to the waveforms acquired by > 14,000 stations in Pan-Europe, including dense temporary experiments, with strong emphasis on state-of-the-art webservices, open, FAIR and high-quality data.

In this session we welcome a broad range of seismological studies sharing the common feature of being rooted in data and metadata made available through the coordinated data access systems promoted by ORFEUS (both EIDA and SM services). We welcome the suggestions of the scientific users community on possible improvement of services, products, data and metadata QC to enhance users’ experience and data-driven science production.
