The PTS is actively pursuing initiatives to improve the performance of the IDC waveform automatic processing pipeline. Some active research and development areas are :

  • Further development of an integrated waveform quality control module and its application in all stages of the automatic processing pipeline
  • Evaluating new methods that can improve the pipeline performance in processing aftershock sequences and recurring events.
  • Evaluating and integrating new detectors and associators into the IDC processing pipeline.
  • Tuning components of IDC pipeline processing in order to optimize their performance.
  • Advances in event screening.
  • Evaluating global seismic and/or hydro-acoustic three-dimensional travel time models and optimizing location capabilities.
  • The objective of this technical expert meeting is twofold:

  • Part of the meeting will be dedicated to exploring advances to waveform processing that may improve the IDC waveform pipeline processing, including tools and methodologies for testing and validation ;
  • Part of the meeting will be dedicated to discussing waveform Special Studies and Expert Technical Analysis – procedures, methods, use of data and content of UEB and SRMR.

    Meeting participants are welcome to contribute to the technical meeting by making a brief presentation related to one of the topics above.
