About INSN

The Geophysics Section within DIAS operates and maintains the Irish National Seismic Network (INSN), since 2018 with support from the Geological Survey Ireland (GSI). The INSN operates since 1978 and currently comprises six permanent seismic stations, see map. Stations DSB and VAL are operated in collaboration with the GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam (GFZ, Germany), VAL also in collaboration with Met Eireann. Data are transmitted from the seismic stations in real-time to the INSN data centre located in 5 Merrion Square, Dublin 2 and to our international partners GFZ, the British Geological Survey (BGS), ORFEUS and IRIS.
