Welcome to EMC

Earthquake monitoring Center (EMC) is a national Omani research center located in Sultan Qaboos University. It was established in 2001 to record earthquakes locally, regionally and internationally. The EMC receives real time data from remote seismic stations to analyze the data, locate the event and store the parameters in the Oman Seismological Network database. The recorded data represents the core for conducting advanced research and studies on the seismicity and geophysics. One main objective of EMC is to establish hazard location maps that can be used by planners and engineers for construction and design to lower the risk of earthquake damages. “
