About INSN

The Geophysics Section within DIAS operates and maintains the Irish National Seismic Network (INSN) with support from the Geological Survey Ireland (GSI). The INSN currently comprises six permanent seismic stations, see map. Data are transmitted in quasi real-time from the seismic stations to our data centre in Dublin and also to our international partners GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam (GFZ, Germany), ORFEUS, IRIS and the British Geological Survey (BGS).

Stations DSB in Dublin and VAL in Kerry are operated in collaboration with GFZ, station VAL also in collaboration with Met Eireann.
