Web-based seismic monitoring of volcanoes -
   request for information
From: Glenn Thompson 

With a single PC workstation it is now possible to compute plots (e.g.
spectrograms) of continuous seismic data for dozens of stations and display
these on the World-Wide Web within minutes. Web-based seismic monitoring of
volcanoes offers several advantages, perhaps the main one being that a
person on beeper duty can respond to an alarm without having to leave home
in the middle of the night. It also makes it easy to share data with other
scientists and schools.

I spent the last two years developing a Web-based system to monitor the
seismicity at Alaskan volcanoes. I am curious to learn what other systems
exist out there. I would be very grateful if the creators of such systems
would get in touch with me and give me a short (a paragraph would be fine)
description of your system (would be helpful if you included URL and related
publications if any). I would also be happy to hear from anyone who is
currently developing (or thinking about developing) such a system, or
anyone's views on the future of Web-based monitoring of volcanoes (including
web-cams, satellite data etc.).

Many thanks,
