Royal Holloway works in association with the British Geological Survey to provide financial, logistical and educational support for earthquake detectors in schools in our area. We currently have 18 school’s involved and have plans to install 6 more instruments over the next year. As part of this network, we have run our own school’s instrument since early 2008 and record several medium or large earthquakes per month from locations around the world. We provide training in the assembly and operation of the instruments either in schools or using our own facilities.
