Earthquakes

One of the key tasks of the Institute of Seismology is to register and analyze seismic events in Finland and in Northern Europe. A seismic event can either be a natural earthquake or an event caused by human action such as an explosion or an induced earthquake. Earthquakes registered are not exclusively from Fennoscandia but from around the globe. The analysis of seismic events includes the identification of the event type, location, and the determination of magnitude and depth.
