The National Data Center Suriname (NDCSUR), operating since September 2012 is receiving Seismological data from three Seismic stations; from Colombia, Bolivia and Brazil. This data is send to us from the International Data Center (IDC) in Vienna, Austria on a daily basis in near real time. If there is an event of interest in our region, we request data from more stations and analyze it using the Geotool software. If the event is suspicious we can request for additional data (e.g. Radionuclide) and do further analysis. A monthly bulletin of these events is prepared and send to the local authorities and environmental- and disaster departments to develop an understanding that the data is not only used for the CTBTO’s verification regime, but it is also of great importance to civil and scientific applications.
