About

For the first time we are conducting our very newly designed Special Training for SeisComP at our offices in Potsdam, Germany, in September 2020. The training will have a very strong focus evaluating and optimizing the performance of seismic monitoring networks for local, regional and teleseismic earthquakes using dedicated gempa modules .

This Special Training is perfect for network administrators but also for experienced SeisComP users who wish to achieve and maintain highest performance of seismic monitoring networks based on SeisComP.

The training topics are tailored to network performance analysis and optimization:

  • Introduction to tuning options of the standard SeisComP package with optional release upgrade
  • Pipeline processing for separating monitoring targets
  • Offline and real-time playbacks
  • npeval for evaluating network performance parameters in real-time and for planning network designs:
    • real-time network performance analysis
    • network design planning
    • application for specfic pipelines
    • dynamic map updates and map configurations
  • scqceval for automatic re-configuration of seismic networks based on evaluating waveform quality control (QC) parameters in real time:
    • real-time evaluation of waveform QC parameter
    • real-time and automatic reconfiguration of seismic network based on QC parameters
  • sceval for automatic re-configuration of seismic networks based on evaluating waveform quality control (QC) parameters in real time:
    • real-time evaluation of event solutions
    • application for specfic pipelines
    • evaluation in playbacks
    • automatic tuning based on machine learning methods
  • Data quality control:
    • scqc / scqcv for computing and visualizing waveform QC parameters
    • scquery for reading and processing waveform QC parameters from the database
    • PPSD plots
  • Participants may bring their own datasets and use it for tuning.

During the training we will spend much time individually with you for tuning. Ideally you will leave the training with a SeisComP system that is well-tuned for your applications. Please contact us for your specific suggestions.

npeval: Central Europe

Dynamic map grid from npeval: minimum time to locate events in Central Europe

Included free of extra charge:

In addition the participants get institute-wide 3 years licenses for

  • npeval : gempa module for evaluating network performance parameters in real-time and for planning network designs
  • scqceval : gempa module for automatic re-configuration of seismic networks based on evaluating waveform quality control (QC) parameters in real time
  • sceval : gempa module for evaluating the quality of event solutions and for discriminating real from fake events in real time considering waveform quality control (QC) parameters
  • gempa's mapprojections package with several map plugins

The training is very intensive and highly hands-on oriented. Trainees get to learn and to practice actively at all times. Therefore, the registration to the 4 days training is open to everyone but limited to a maximum of 8 persons.

It will be held at gempa offices in Potsdam, Germany. See the training page for more information and the goals of the course.

Terms and conditions

Participants bring their own Computer with a modern Linux installed and access to internet. We recommend to choose Linux distributions with Long-Term-Support (LTS). Alternatively, we can provide Linux in a Virtual Machine for which the participant must have VirtualBox installed. The participant will receive the VM about one week before the start of the training and is responsible for the testing and functioning on the computer.

The course fee does not cover costs for accommodation, boarding and transportation. Snacks and drinks will be provided during the course. Contact us if you need help to find your hotel.

Accommodation and transportation in Potsdam

Potsdam offers a wide range of hotels at different categories. The city centre of nearby Berlin is easy to reach by public transportation but at least half an hour extra time should be considered to get to our premises.

Hotels in Potsdam that are close to our premises include:

Public transport in Potsdam and Berlin is usually dense and reliable. Trams, busses and trains are within walking distance from our premise at Potsdam's central train station. Check the connections of tram, bus or train lines:
