New Networks at the DMC

Overview

This section of the newsletter deals with relevant new data arriving to the DMC. A reminder for anyone wanting to know what data is currently arriving to the IRIS DMC in realtime, there is a web page created expressly for you at http://ds.iris.edu/mda/_REALTIME

This virtual network is kept current by constantly scanning the contents of the Buffer of Uniform Data (BUD) realtime data archive, and it enables quick maps and views of which stations are in realtime operation.
