These are just some of the products ISTI has produced, supported, or maintained:

Earthquake Monitoring and Seismic Software

  • Ambient Noise Tomography – This technique uses background seismic noise between pairs of stations to image the subsurface velocity structure and provide a model independent of other more direct imaging techniques.
  • AQMS – ANSS Quake Monitoring System – the definitive post-processing tool for an Earthworm system. ISTI is the only provider of services for installation of this package.
  • EarthWorm – the definitive Open Source Earthquake monitoring package in use around the world
  • ewSMSalert – A Java based tool that uses hardware modems to send SMS alerts of earthquake locations from an Earthworm based detection system. This tool can also be used with a gateway, but is primarily for sending to mobile devices directly using SMS modems.
  • EZ EarthWorm– Graphical user interface and administration tool for the EarthWorm Earthquake monitoring package
  • Frac and Pre-Frac Monitoring – ISTI has 6 years of experience monitoring gas and oil fracing for production or regulatory purposes. Let us help solve your geophysical puzzle that is the fracture network beneath your field. We work closely with our sister company, Earth Imaging Inc which brings high resolution techniques into our deliverables.
  • Full Waveform Inversion – From synthetic waveforms to earth modeling, let ISTI customize a solution for your region of interest.
  • Induced Seismicity Monitoring – Let ISTI provide you with a solution to monitor your injection operations in real-time with an advanced system or a simple traffic light.
  • Passive Seismic Tomography – A technique developed in the early 80s by K. Aki and students at MIT to image the subsurface of the earth.
  • QuakeWatch – EIDS/QuakeWatch is the ISTI tool developed for Earthquake alerting and reporting. This is in use at CISN and the USGS.
  • Details on these projects coming soon
    • SeisComP3
    • SeisComP3 Laboratory (ISTI)
    • Structural Health Monitoring
