Case Studies & Peer Reviewed Literature
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. “

On-Demand RS Data Archive
Raspberry Shake is 100% FDSN compatible and available on demand for researchers from Raspberry Shake’s FDSN Web Service.
Compatible Seismological Software
Raspberry Shake follows FDSN and SEED standards. Data generated by Raspberry Shake products is compatible with every popular software package in seismology, including:
AQMS, Antelope, Earlybird, Earthworm, Geospy, FDSNWS, Hydra, Matlab (GISMO), PQLX, Python (pip, matplotlib, ObsPy), SAC, SeedLink, Seisan, SeisComP, SeisGram2K, Seismic Handler, ShakeMap, SQLX, Swarm, WinSDR
Raspberry Shake is compatible with Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) packages such as SeisComP’s Virtual Seismologist and PRESTo.
We conclude that RS-4Ds are suitable for densifying backbone networks designed for studies of local and regional events.
It is more than a gadget! It can be used to locally densify networks to lower magnitude of completeness, it can be an alternative in regions where the situation does not allow the deployment of scientific grade seismometers, can also help for discriminating quarry blasts etc
It is a fun way to tinker with new technology, but it is also helping move the science forward. Not only the Raspberry Shake detect and visualize earthquakes, but having citizen scientists share their Raspberry Shake data increases Oklahoma’s seismic network coverage, and allows to detect more earthquakes more accurately. It is a win-win situation for everyone involved.
When I received research funding to go to Antarctica to study ice flow and sediment transfer I didn’t think twice about taking a RaspberryShake (or three!) with me. The plug-and-play but programmable nature of the RaspberryShake is perfect for my research – allowing me to modify each unit over and over again for different research agendas (like year-round monitoring of rockfalls, or short-term monitoring of ice quakes). The lightweight, portable design is easy to pop in my hold luggage, and field deployment is very straight forward – I just have to plug a battery into the RaspberryShake and cover the whole system up with a weather-proof case. The team at RaspberryShake are always on hand to help with programming and data processing. I would certainly recommend the RasberryShake to a wide variety of researchers and I will definitely take a RaspberryShake with me on my next field campaign.
