We are pleased to announce that the BSL has implemented the FISSURES/DHI framework at the NCEDC. FISSURES is an IRIS project, led by the University of South Carolina.

Several FISSURES/DHI services have been implemented at the NCEDC and are available now:

Seismogram Service: (Waveform Information)

  • NCEDC_DataCenter
    • Continuous waveforms for BK,BP,CI,NC,NN,UL networks
    • Coming soon! Event waveforms for NCSN network (BK,CI,LA,NC,NN,NP,WR network codes)

Event Services: (Parametric Information)

  • BDSN_EventDC
    • BDSN catalogs from January 1984 to Present.
    • Coming soon! Historic BDSN catalogs from 1910 to 1984
  • NCSN_EventDC
    • NCSN catalogs from July 1966 to December 2002.
    • Coming soon! Current NCSN catalogs from 2003 to Present.

Network Service: (Instrument Responses)

  • NCEDC_NetworkDC
    • Instrument responses for networks AZ,BK,BP,CI,LB,NC,NN,NP,UL,US.
    • Coming soon! Instrument responses for WR network and completion of NN network

The NCEDC implementation supports the following FISSURES clients:


and in various IRIS newsletters:

  • Data Handling Infrastructure at the DMS
  • DMS Node Focus: University of South Carolina
  • Data Handling Interface for FISSURES
  • JEvalResp and JPlotResp versions 1.0 Released
  • FISSURES-Matlab interface

The NCEDC is a joint project of the University of California, Berkeley and the USGS. Please send us email at or fill out our comments form if you have questions or comments about these changes.
