Suitable data formats for seismological big data provisioning via web services

  • 1. GFZ


Seismological web services have been designed some years ago with particular types of user and data in mind, which are not exclusively what we see today. Disruptive techniques, generating data at much a finer resolution, compared to the standard seismic stations, are a challenge for data centres and users.

Despite seismology is an advanced and well-organised discipline considering FAIR principles, these new datasets would make impossible to still use the same standard data formats and standard specifications for data provisioning services.

Our main aim in this Task is to keep FAIRness in this community through evaluating new data formats suitable for this use case, testing and implementing tailor made services where possible within the currently defined standards. We develop a package tool named dastools as a set of tools to read, manipulate and convert seismic waveforms generated by DAS systems.
