THE ABERDEEN UNIVERSITY COLLECTION

This collection of seismological material originally held at Aberdeen University has been acquired by the National Seismological Archive as part of its initiative on the study of the history of seismology. The collection consists chiefly of seismograms, journals, and bulletins associated with the work at the Aberdeen University Observatory, but also contains some details of Dr Crombie's Observatory at Dyce, near Aberdeen, that was its immediate precursor. Further details of both observatories can be found in report WL/99/13 on UK Historical Seismological Observatories (pre-1970), available for download from the NSA reports page, as can the NSA report on the Aberdeen material detailed here.
