Seismograph setup

Seismograph

The Geoscience department has a seismograph set up in the Dana Science Center which is constantly recording data. This equipment was set up in December 2010 and has been monitoring for earthquakes since.

The setup

The Skidmore setup is pictured to the right. To learn how the seismograph works, check out the Boston College Educational Seismology Project, the USGS seismograph page, and the USGS Earthquake Hazards website.
