Function and task

- Managing, operating and developing National seismic network.

- Conducting basic and applied researches for fast and accurately collecting data.

- Researching characteristic of wave propagation and strong ground motion in Vietnam and adjacent area for studying deep structure and seismic hazard assessment.

Network system


- 9 short period of 1s, 1 component sensors.

- 14 short period of 1s, 3 component sensors.

- 5 broadband sensors 120s-50Hz, going to add 20 sensors more.

Seismic networks

- Telemetry network for observing earthquake surround Hanoi and adjacent area.

- Short period network for observing earthquake in Vietnam and adjacent area. It is distributed on whole Vietnam, and mostly concentrate in Northern Vietnam.
