Webicorders

Here are the webicorders from the geophones that I own and run. It is not possible to see locations with this webicorders. Too see those, checking the Icelandic Met Office website is required. Number of geophones that I have running is different between years, since it is not always possible for me to keep geophones running at all locations. In the year 2022 I did not have any geophone running in Iceland. The geophones show a lot of huma related activity, car traffic and other human related noise that it records.

About the geophones

This is 4.5Hz seismometer. Making it good to record local earthquake activity. Large earthquakes, with magnitude larger than Mw7,0 are recorded on this type of seismometer. I
might run few Raspberry Shake sensors in the future. When that is going to happen I don't know yet.

If you want to monitor earthquakes or volcano activity if you are close to an active volcano. The best way to do so is to buy Raspberry Shake seismometers here.
