Seismic Waveforms

Extracting Waveforms

Waveform data from GeoNet's seismic, acoustic and tidal gauge instruments can be requested through the following service:

FDSN webservices

This is our recommended and fully supported data access tool. For more information see the FDSN page.

Large Data Requests

If you need large amounts of continuous waveform data, the recommended mechanism is via AWS Open Data.

Please contact us for additional information.

Real-Time Waveforms

SeedLink protocol is used by GeoNet to send waveform data in from the field stations to our data centres, and within our processing systems. GeoNet also runs a publicly accessible SeedLink server.

For information about the protocol please see the IRIS SeedLink Website.

If you would like to connect to our SeedLink server please contact us.
