sceval automatically discriminates real earthquakes from fake solutions. Reliable automatic monitoring of earthquakes at low magnitudes is challenging due to the low number and the possibly low quality of available phase detections. Therefore, automatic systems are often tuned to only accept robust solutions with many observations preventing fake events. Such systems potentially miss weak events resulting in incomplete earthquake catalogs. sceval therefore supports reliable monitoring of seismicity at thresholds.
Promotion at Science Conferences¶
sceval has been demonstrated, promoted and discussed with scientists and the SeisComP community at international science conferences, e.g.:
