Abstract:

A real-time program for a digital computer is described which uses the sampled outputs of an array of 21 seismometers as input. These data are reduced and output as a typewritten list of the physical parameters of any event present in the original data. The physical parameters automatically listed are some of the standard items included in the international seismic bulletin e.g., epicenter location, origin time and magnitude. Results of this automatic method are presented.
