The National Earthquake Information Service, formerly a component of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, has now been shifted to the U.S. Geological Survey.
The quake information group, located in Boulder, Colorado, receives and analyzes worldwide seismic data, determines earthquake epicenter locations, collects earthquake damage data, and makes the data available through publications. The group also provides assistance to other federal agencies concerning studies such as seismic effects of nuclear blast testing, building vibration studies, and nuclear power plant siting.
