Seismology in Lebanon



During the last several years, while civil war raged in Lebanon, the Bhannes seismograph station near Beirut continued to operate and provide seismograms and phase readings on a regular basis.

Seismologists around the world owe gratitude to Charles Tabet, an employee of both the Lebanon National Council for Scientific Research (NCSR) and the American University of Beirut, for his daily dedication to maintaining the station's operations. In addition, Iskandar Sursock, also of the NCSR, has provided essential support and personal resources to continue the seismological program in Lebanon.
