Real Time Strong Motion Network
In collaboration with CMC (Crisis Management Centre), UKIM-IZIIS initiated implementation of a Shake Map System in the Republic of Macedonia.
Thirteen GURALP instruments were installed in the most seismic active regions of the country. Centralized real time registration of the signals (data acquisition and presentation) is done at UKIM-IZIIS. Later, the same is also planned to be done at the CMC Headquarters. The main purpose of the network is to provide rapid information on earthquake parameters and affected areas as well as a Shake Map in order to facilitate decisions for search and rescue operations and resources needed for immediate action after an event.
