Seismological Monitoring


Seismicity  Monitoring  in  Gujarat  and   Reporting    the earthquake location and magnitude within 10 minutes.

  • To determine maximum possible acceleration at different locations in an area for different natural periods of buildings, i.e. Response Spectra on the ground.

Future Plan:

Estimation and reporting of location and magnitude within seconds by Auto Location Program. Early Warning at Ahmedabad by 30 seconds of large earthquakes in Kachchh.


  • 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.
