ESE modules documentation#
This is the documentation for the SED-ETHZ EEW SeisComP modules.
Since 2021, the SED-ETHZ SeisComP EEW framework includes two EEW algorithms, the Virtual Seismologist and the Finite-Fault Rupture Detector. They are supported by generic pre-processing and post-processing modules. Their architecture is designed to be flexible and extensible to also include other EEW algorithms in the future.
The architecture of the SED-ETHZ SeisComP EEW package is based on a common, generic envelope processing library, compiled within the sceewenv module, that generates real-time envelope values for horizontal and vertical acceleration, velocity, and displacement from raw acceleration and velocity waveforms. The envelopes are uses by two EEW algorithms:
The Virtual Seismologist (Virtual Seismologist ) algorithm, receives envelopes from the sceewenv module, and provides near instantaneous estimates of earthquake magnitude as soon as SeisComP origins are available.
The Finite-Fault Rupture Detector (Finite-Fault Rupture Detector ) algorithm, is integrated in a single module with the envelope and the finder libraries, and matches emerging patterns of strong motion from the seismic network with most likely seismic sources to predict the location and size of finite faults.
In addition, the sceewlog module creates log output and mails solutions once a new event is fully processed. It also provides an interface to send alerts in real-time.
scfinder module added.
Generic EEW pre-processing module sceewenv replaces VS-specific scenvelope (deprecated).
Generic EEW post-processing module sceewlog replaces VS-specific scvsmaglog (depracated). Licence for these new modules unchanged.
