Network of Environment Monitoring Stations
This Network of Environment Monitoring Stations monitors seismic activity and, depending on the location of the earthquake, may be used to give 10-15 second warnings before earthquakes reach certain locations. The database also provides a list of all important infrastructure, and together with real-time monitoring of seismic activity can aid in disaster response, assessment and coordination.
The network is operated by the Central-Asian Institute for Applied Geoscience (CAIAG), a multidisciplinary institute comprising most of the geoscientific disciplines like geology, glaciology, hydrology, limnology, climatology, geophysics, geodesy and remote sensing. CAIAG operates dedicated monitoring networks for seismology and geodesy, a network of hydro-meteorological monitoring stations and high mountain glacier observatories.
