Director's Report: 2019 (pdf)

It was another hugely productive year for the ISC thanks to the support of 68 Member-Institutions and 13 Project Sponsors and despite the local government in West Berkshire taxing the ISC at the standard business rate. To alleviate the problem, the ISC has been considering registration with the Charity Commission for England and Wales.

The data for seismic events during 2016-2019 have been added to the ISC Bulletin. The ISC Bulletin has been rebuilt and released for the period 1985-1990. The ISC continued using openly available waveforms to determine source mechanisms, based on first onset polarities, and to constrain earthquake depths, based on depth phase pickings. Smaller continental earthquakes during the 1980-1990 period and several hundreds of source mechanisms from literature have been added to the ISC-GEM catalogue. We released the ISC-EHB dataset and corresponding subduction zone crosssections for the entire period (1964-2016). We began operating the ISC Seismological Dataset Repository.

Both the ISC download statistics and the large number of scientific research articles indicates an extensive worldwide use of ISC data.
