rsudp: A Python package for real-time seismic monitoring with Raspberry Shake instruments

“Raspberry Shake seismographs are commonly used in schools, by Shake community members, and other individuals having no formal training in seismology. The existence of this class of instruments highlighted the need for easy-to-use visualization and notification software to complement these devices.”

Raspberry Shake Instruments Provide Initial Ground‐Motion Assessment of the Induced Seismicity at the United Downs Deep Geothermal Power Project in Cornwall, United Kingdom

“Raspberry Shake (RS) seismographs offer the potential for affordable and citizen‐led seismic monitoring in areas with few publicly available seismometers, especially in previously quiescent regions experiencing induced seismicity. ”

Separating and denoising seismic signals with dual-path recurrent neural network architecture

“Separation of overlapping signals is an important task in signal processing, with application in music, speech, and seismic signal processing. We show that separation is possible also for seismic recordings, using techniques from machine learning (and even those recorded with a single sensor).”

Raspberry Shake Sensor Field Tests for Unstable Rock Monitoring

In this work, we evaluate the performance of the Raspberry Shake 3D (RS-3D) seismometer in estimating the resonance frequencies of unstable rock blocks. In this perspective, we compared this low-cost sensor with the Nanometrics Trillium Compact 20s to assess whether RS-3D is suitable for the development of reliable rock monitoring systems.
