Southern California earthquake data center



The Southern California Earthquake Center Data Center (SCECDC) is the component of SCEC that stores the seismological, geodetic, and strong-motion data collected in southern California. These data are to be integrated into a probabilistic seismic hazard analysis of southern California known locally as the “master model.” The SCECDC is located at Caltech in Pasadena, and has been on-line since January. It consists of a Sun Sparc II station connected to a mass storage device, “Jukebox,” containing optical disks. This Jukebox is capable of storing 300 gigabytes of data on-line at one time.
