In Seismology, Seismometers are sensors that sense and record the motion of the Earth arising from elastic waves.A complete instrument package that records seismic signals is called a seismograph. Networks of seismographs continuously record ground motions around the world to facilitate the monitoring and analysis of global earthquakes and other seismic sources. Rapid location of earthquakes makes tsunami warnings possible because seismic waves travel considerably faster than tsunami waves.
Journal of Geophysics & Remote Sensing is one of the most viewed journals in Seismology. This journal includes theoretical and practical works, relevant case studies, topical surveys, and research articles that address emerging trends on earth sciences.Seismometers also record signals from non-earthquake sources ranging from explosions (nuclear and chemical), to local noise from wind or anthropogenic activities, to incessant signals generated at the ocean floor and coasts induced by ocean waves (the global microseism), to cryospheric events associated with large icebergs and glaciers.
OMICS Group will keep up to date with latest advances in the respective fields and papers published in its journals will reach the readers directly through E-mail. OMICS Group Journals encourages original and well researched articles for publication. OMICS Group formed a network by signing agreements with more than 100 international societies and formed scientific alliances to make healthcare information Open Access.
