Monitoring Programme

A network of 52 seismological observatories is established with state of art digital broadband seismographs. The seismic data from most of these observatories are downloaded at Gandhinagar via VSAT. The seismic activity is monitored round the clock. The details of any regional earthquake are reported within few minutes. In addition to this a network of 54 Strong Motion Accelerographs (SMA) is also established to record strong ground motions.


  • ISR has started geophysical surveys for Geothermal Energy in Gujarat state. ISR has pioneered a technique of 3D MT imaging of crust. Geological faults and crustal structure have been mapped in Kachchh.
  • ISR is carrying out Multiparametric Geophysical and Geochemical studies in Kachchh for earthquake prediction research.
  • ISR has upgraded Gujarat State Seismic Network from 19 online seismic stations to 40.
