Accelerometers Installed in MO

Through a research grant from the Department of Science Technology-Technology Application and Promotion Institute, Tekton Geometrix partnered with the Solid Earth Dynamics and Upper Atmosphere Dynamics laboratory in installing an accelerometer in the Manila Observatory to observe local ground shaking intensity.

This instrument will be able to assess if it is safe to enter the building after an earthquake. This will also monitor daily ground shaking activities. The instruments are installed in the basement of the main building of the Observatory and in the Seismic Vault.
