Support for this project is provided by the U.S. Geological Survey. The ongoing testing of ElarmS and other early warning algorithms in California is a collaboration within the California Integrated Seismic Network (CISN) between the University of California, Berkeley, Caltech, SCEC/USC and the U.S. Geological Survey.
