N. Triantafyllis, Automatic moment tensor determination for the Hellenic Unified Seismic Network., Δελτίο της Ελληνικής Γεωλογικής Εταιρείας, 47|2013, 1308-1315

Modern seismic networks with broadband sensors and real time digital telemetry made Moment Tensor (MT) determination a routine procedure. Automatic MT’s are now provided by global networks and a few very dense regional networks, within minutes after a significant event. An automatic MT determination wasn’t possible for the broader Hellenic area since seismic station density wasn’t sufficient. The creation of the Hellenic Unified Seismic Network (HUSN) provided the opportunity to apply an automated MT procedure using the available broad band data from almost    one hundred stations. Thus the ISOLA code was extended towards the automatic operation based on Linux OS shell scripts, stand alone Fortran codes and SAC2000. Software supports both manual and automatic mode; at the first case, the user manually runs the program with the desired input parameters while at the latter, the system monitors a mailbox or RSS feed and if it receives an appropriate notification triggers the MT inversion procedure based on certain conditions. As it is setup now it calculates automatically the moment tensor of earthquakes larger than 3.5M  w using data from HUSN. Application of an automated MT inversion procedure for HUSN will provide important real time information for studies like ground motion evaluation, tsunami warning etc.
