Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory

Lamont-Doherty Cooperative Seismographic Network (LCSN) monitors earthquakes that occur primarily in the Eastern United States and make the data available to scientific community and to general public. The network is operated jointly by the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) and many other educational institutions and public organizations in the Eastern United States. LCSN is a component of the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS). Major funds to operate the network have been provided by the US Geological Survey under the National Earthquake Hazard Reduction Program (NEHRP).
