Raspberry Shake Data Center

Feed your research with high quality data

The Raspberry Shake Data Center (SDC) is online and ready to serve you. All of the historical seismic data from the Raspberry Shake network is available for download using the SDC’s FDSN Web Service.

Data from 1,000s of stations

Raspberry Shake operates the largest permanent real-time streaming seismic network in the world

60 TB of data

Since 2016, the SDC has collected over 60 TB of seismic and infrasound data, complete with instrument response files

Free access

All historical data is freely accessible via the SDC’s FDSN Web Service

Seismology’s first and only crowd sourced data center

Data from the Raspberry Shake network has grown enormously thanks to continuous real-time contributions from professional seismologists and citizen scientists alike. This is community science participation at its best.

FDSN Web Services

Use the SDC’s FDSNWS to access station metadata in FDSN StationXML, StationXML and SC3XML formats and time series data in miniSEED format. All historical data all the way back to 2016 when Raspberry Shake was born is now online and available via FDSNWS.

Peer reviewed publications

Scientific journals have already begun to publish original research that leverages data from the SDC. We have made the historical data freely accessible and easy to access. What hypotheses will you test?

Global quieting of high-frequency seismic noise due to COVID-19 pandemic lockdown measures

“We compiled a global seismic noise dataset using vertical-component seismic waveform data from 337 broadband and individually operated citizen seismometer stations (24), such as Raspberry Shakes (RS), with a self-noise well below the ground motion generated by anthropogenic noise (25), and flat responses in the target frequency band. “
