HISTORICAL SEISMOLOGICAL OBSERVATORIES IN THE BRITISH ISLES

The UK National Seismological Archive (NSA) has undertaken to publish as much information as possible on historical seismological observatories in the UK. The primary purpose of this is to present researchers with a guide to the current state of knowledge of observatories, and hence their data, providing an overview for each observatory and, in the process, identifying material for copy or transfer to the archive (where possible).

Examination of material curated in the NSA, enquiries to local libraries, museums and other public bodies, and searches of published journals and seismologists' papers has revealed a wealth of new information, and enabled the updating of the information made available.

The report (Lovell, J.H. & P.H.O. Henni, 1999. Historical Seismological Observatories in the British Isles (pre-1970) VERSION 3. British Geological Survey, Global Seismology Series, Technical Report WL/99/13), contains details of over 50 seismological observatories, many previously unknown. Complementary reports are available from the NSA reports page , including those on NSA-held bulletins, seismograms, the work of John Milne ,WWSSN microfilm and other subjects.
