Category: Play  
 

Red Sismica De Puerto Rico is the Puerto Rico Seismic Network that is part of the Department of Geology at the University of Puerto Rico. The Red Sismica De Puerto Rico is the leading center in the monitoring, warning and information, research and education of earthquakes and tsunamis in the Caribbean. It is their mission to come up with the reliable information regarding effects of earthquakes and tsunamis in a timely manner.

The Seismic Network was started in 1974 by the United States Geological Survey for the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority. The principal objective was to evaluate the local seismicity for the construction of the Aquirre and Islote nuclear power plants. It was transferred to the Department of Geology at the University of Puerto Rico in 1987.

The Seismic Network currently consists of 13 short period seismometers and 10 broad band seismometers which are installed in Puerto Rico and nearby islands, all operating along with 3 repeater stations and a data acquisition center.
