This aim of Seismogram Scanning Project (SSP) is to scan selected analog seismograms kept on store in the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory (BSL) Seismogram Archive and generate digital image files for studying microseismic source areas and distribution in relation to wave climate. The Berkeley Seismogram Archive, where approximately 1.2 million analog seismograms dating back to 1910 are stored, contains seismograms recorded at the Berkeley seismic station, dating back to 1930, which are crucial for this project. This scanning project is being undertaken in collaboration with Dr. Peter Bromirski of the University of California, San Diego/Scripps Institution of Oceanography on his project funded by the California Department of Boating and Waterways. The corresponding digitization of the scanned seismograms is being done at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
