GEOL 114 The Earth's Dynamic Interior Lecture Notes (Copyright © 2005 by Jeffrey S. Barker) Lab 2. Earthquake Location Question: Given a set of seismograms which recorded an earthquake at several stations around the world, where was the earthquake located? Data: A global network of seismograph stations has been in operation for a number of years, and is constantly expanding and improving. Data (seismograms) from these stations are collected and distributed by the Data Management Center of the Incorporated Research Institutions in Seismology (IRIS), currently located at the University of Washington. The data we will use in this experiment were obtained via the internet from the IRIS DMC. You will be given copies of vertical-, north- and east-component seismograms for a particular earthquake recorded at one station.
