Abstract

The Internet Site for European Strong-Motion Data (ISESD) provides unlimited free access to over 2,000 strong-motion records of earthquakes from Europe, the Mediterranean and the Middle East (EMME). Four mirror sites of ISESD have been operating since 26th March 2002. The URLs of these sites are: www.isesd.cv.ic.ac.uk, smbase.itsak.gr, seismo.univ.trieste.it and www.isesd.hi.is. ISESD provides a basis for improved dissemination of strong-motion data in EMME. There are a number of future improvements to ISESD which would improve its usefulness to seismologists, earthquake engineers and insurance specialists.
