GEOSCOPE provides earthquake characteristics and associated data for earthquakes with magnitude larger than 5.5-6, and for smaller earthquakes when located in France or in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
First information related to an earthquake is typically posted 45 minutes after earthquake origin. An update is done later in order to provide access to the data over a ~5h30 long window starting at the earthquake origin time. Data (seismograms) are raw data (not yet validated), and mainly come from real-time protocols. Time is in UTC and epicentral locations are from USGS.
Data and information related to an earthquake include:
For some earthquakes, additional information provided by other institutes/organisms is provided.
Several e-mail alerts are available, as soon as a new earthquake has been analyzed: (1) for all earthquakes, (2) for earthquakes with Mw>=6.5, and (3) for earthquakes with Mw>=7.
