Webinar #7: Historical Seismograms: Preserving an Endangered Species (November 2015)
Archived datasets of historical seismograms are extremely valuable to understand the occurrence of large, destructive earthquakes. Unfortunately, the value of these datasets is not always perceived. On 6 November, Professor Okal presented a brief review of the nature of the datasets of seismological archives, and of specific algorithms allowing their use. He then described protocols for the transfer of analog datasets to digital supports. Finally, worldwide examples of existing collections, and of successful programmes of digital archiving of valuable datasets were given. Watch the recording and the Q&A session!
