*About the Albuquerque Seismological Laboratory (ASL):*

We install, operate, and maintain the US Geological Survey (USGS) component
of the Global Seismographic Network (GSN), the backbone of the Advanced
National Seismic System (ANSS), as well as a number of regional seismic
networks. Along with operating these networks, the ASL ensures the quality
and integrity of the data.

GSN and ANSS data is used for real-time seismic monitoring by the USGS
National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC), for tsunami warnings by the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Tsunami Warning
Centers, for nuclear test monitoring by the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty
Organization (CTBTO) and the US Air Force, and for scientific research. Our
scientific research on earthquake processes, Earth structure and other
geophysical problems is used by a broad community of international users.
