The Finnish National Seismic Network: Toward Fully Automated Analysis of Low‐Magnitude Seismic Events

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


We present an overview of the seismic networks, products, and services in Finland, northern Europe, and the challenges and opportunities associated with the unique combination of prevailing crystalline bedrock, low natural intraplate seismic background activity, and a high level of anthropogenic seismicity. We introduce national and local seismic networks, explain the databases, analysis tools, and data management concepts, outline the Finnish macroseismic service, and showcase data from the 2017 M 3.3 Liminka earthquake in Ostrobothnia, Finland.
