Media Release New ultra-low latency data transmission protocol for Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) unveiled at AGU Fall Meeting, San Francisco. GDI can transmit data 25 times faster than standard EEW protocols. Güralp Systems Ltd, the leading global provider of seismic monitoring instrumentation and solutions, unveiled a new, free-licence, data transmission protocol that dramatically reduces the time it takes seismic instrumentation to inform Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) systems that an earthquake has occurred. Güralp has devised a packetized data transmission protocol called Güralp Data Interchange, (GDI) that allows seismic waveforms to be transmitted sample by sample, as they are acquired by the instrumentation. To further improve speed, GDI adapts the size of the data packets it sends to suit the bandwidth available in the network. This means that transmission time is absolutely minimised for the EEW network and data can be received in as little as 30 ms. Data protocols currently used…

Media Release Güralp Systems Ltd, the leading global provider of seismic monitoring instrumentation and solutions, is proud to be supporting Anywhen, a new commission at Tate Modern, London with the loan of a 40T seismometer and DM24 digitiser. Anywhen by Philippe Parreno is the latest in the Hyundai Commission, a series of commissions that form a regular feature at the Tate Modern each year between October and March. Anywhen presents itself as an instrument which performs a series of functions and constructs a series of situations. The hall’s lights are controlled and activated according to different sequences. A changing soundscape is broadcast from various sources, blurring the sense of inside and outside, public and private, natural and technological. The highly sensitive Güralp 40T seismometer and high fidelity DM24 digitiser forms one element of the technology working behind the scenes of the commission. The seismometer is being used like a musical…

Response Statement: Security is a key priority in the design of all Güralp hardware and software. Recent media coverage has highlighted an investigation carried out in Costa Rica into potential vulnerabilities of seismic systems from the threat of hackers. We are continually reviewing the security arrangements and guidance we have in place for networking of our products and software. We would like to reassure customers that as long as our security guidance is followed, customers can mitigate the risks associated with the type of hacking methods used in the investigation. Any instrument on a network is only as secure as the network itself. Once the instruments are exposed to the internet, the network operators are responsible for adhering to Güralp product guidance and network security good practice to protect their systems from hackers. The Güralp guidance recommends that users undertake the following when using all Güralp digital products: Change factory…

Media Release Güralp Systems Ltd, the leading global provider of seismic monitoring instrumentation and solutions, is proud to be sponsoring the Explosive Earth exhibit by the University of Cambridge at the 2016 Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition in London from the 4th – 10th July. The Explosive Earth exhibit showcases research in the field of volcano seismology, specifically the 30,000 earthquakes that led up to a spectacular six-month eruption in Iceland in 2014. The study utilised an array of 70 Güralp seismometers as well as other geophysical instrumentation to monitor the earthquakes. The study is instrumental in developing understanding of the physical processes that occur in volcanic systems prior to an eruption which is important for eruption forecasting. The study also has potential to shed light on triggering seismicity resulting from geological engineering such as near geothermal areas or hydraulic fracturing sites. Professor Bob White of Cambridge University commented "The…
