Abstract: The GEOSCOPE network (G) is a global seismological network created in 1982 to respond to the challenge of instrumenting isolated sites all around the world.
The GEOSCOPE network is primarily dedicated to research and its data are used for studies of Earth structure and dynamics, seismic sources, time dependent seismology and environmental seismology.
It currently runs 35 seismic stations, all of which are now equipped to provide real-time data, used for rapid source determination (among others by tsunami alert centers).
Most of the stations (23) include a very broad band seismometer (STS1), and the remaining ones a broadband seismometer (STS2 or Trillium 240).
Stations are usually installed in vaults with special equipments aimed at reducing long period noise related to atmospheric pressure variation.
Data of this network are freely and fully disseminated in SEED format (both in real time and after validation) by the IPGP, RESIF and IRIS data centers.
IPGP data center also provides additional products built with GEOSCOPE data, such as near real-time estimation of global seismicity source parameters (for earthquakes above magnitude 5.5-6).
