The second of our "Citizen Science" projects is the Quake Catcher Network (QCN). This a project that uses personal computers to do research in seismology. After almost eight years at Stanford, and a year at CalTech, the QCN project has moved to the University of Southern California Dept. of Earth Sciences, and is a project of collaboration between interested members of the public and the university in developing the world’s largest, low-cost, strong-motion, seismic network by using sensors inside, or attached to, computers connected to the Internet.


Of particular interest here in Catalonia, Spain is the potential movement of the seabed in relation to the Castor Rig Strategic Gas Storage project, situated nearby off the Valencian coast.
