Abstract : The design of a seismic research center is considered. This system is to perform the tasks of the present SDAC and to meet the requirements of a seismic data center which can record and process the data from up to 50 NSS Mod II type seismic stations. A design is developed consisting of four modules: a multimicrocomputer front end for communications and detection of seismic signals in the data stream; a recording mini-computer to archive the data and write the detection to disk; a network analysis computer to perform associations of events with detections; and a research computer to perform general scientific computing in a multi-user, multi-task environment. Specific hardware is recommended for each module and for a local network which will connect the machines to each other. (Author)
