Ellwood School Visits NEES@UCSB Wednesday, 1 March 2006

The sixth graders from Ellwood Elementary School visited the UCSB campus and learned firsthand how scientists measure earthquakes. Using a Geotech Instruments Model S-13 seismometer housed in a see-through plexiglass case, the students were able to develop an understanding for how ground motions are measured by seismologists.



​The UCSB Geotechnical Array monitoring program is jointly funded by Pacific Gas & Electric Company and the United States Geological Survey.

This site previously funded 2015 to 2017 by the NRC Contract#NRC-HQ-60-15-C-000, project title "Observations and Analysis of Geotechnical Data". And 2004 to 2014 by the Geoge E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) Program of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) under Award# CMMI-0927178.
