Skidaway seismograph detects Nepal earthquake

The seismograph planted in the meadow near Groves Creek detected the April 25th earthquake in Nepal.Earthquake Seismic Image

The seismograph was originally part of an NSF funded project of the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology. It was one of dozens of transportable arrays that were moved across the country and collecting seismic activity to image the deep earth several years ago. When the project was completed, the Skidaway station was transferred to another project to monitor earthquakes in the US.  The array is powered by the solar panel that many have seen on the northern end of the Groves Creek meadow.
