Seismic bulletins

One of the tasks of the Institute of Seismology is to publish seismic bulletins on seismic events in Finland and the analysis of these events. The Institute of Seismology publishes three types of seismic bulletins:

Institute of Seismology publishes fully automatic, near real-time bulletins of seismic events in Finland and adjacent areas. The bulletins are based on real-time data from the Institute of Seismology and the co-operative seismological agencies.

Please note that the these bulletins contain FULLY AUTOMATIC locations of seismic events in Finland and adjacent areas. Note that these solutions are unchecked and may have large errors in location/magnitude/event type identification,or be altogether incorrect.

Reviewed event lists can be found in 3-5 working days here.

Automatic bulletins are first reviewed by an analyst and published as preliminary daily bulletins. The preliminary bulletins are later supplemented with data from co-operative seismological agencies (in Estonia, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and north-western Russia) to compile the final monthly bulletins of seismic events in northern Europe.

Institute also publishes earthquake catalogs, maps and annual bulletins of earthquakes in northern Europe. Links to catalogs, maps and lists are listed below.

You can use the interactive map tool to search for earthquakes and certain other seismic events in the Earthquake Catalog of Northern Europe (FENCAT). The app is meant to provide a more intuitive way to search and browse the text-based catalog.
