TOAST Upgrade and Moment Tensor Modules for Tsunami-Early Warning at BMKG, Indonesia
Jul 26, 2016 · Projects
At BMKG in Jakarta, Indonesia , we have upgraded SeisComP3 and TOAST to the latest release and installed the modules MTV and AUTOMT for determination of earthquake moment-tensors. gempa GmbH has been supporting BMKG to establish and to increase capacities for earthquake and tsunami early warning for Indonesia and the Indian Ocean.

We have trained 9 seismologists from An-Najah National University , Geophysical Insitute of Israel (GII) and the Jordan Seismological Observatory (JSO) in using SeisComP3 and gempa’s QuakeLink module. After return to their home institutions, the trainees will apply their new knowledge on SeisComP3 to monitor earthquakes and quarry blasts in the Middle East and QuakeLink to exchange earthquake parameters between the three institutions.

ISOR in Reykjavik, Iceland, has been using SeisComP3 for a long time to monitor natural and induced earthquakes at geothermal fields and at the numerous active volcanoes on Iceland. In the future ISOR will even further enhance their monitoring using gempa’s software packages scanloc, sceval, CAPS, the moment tensor module and the mapprojection.
