The Uppsala seismology group consist of staff members of both the Section
of Solid Earth Physics and the Section of Seismology at the Department
of Earth Sciences, Uppsala University. These sections did constitute the
former Department of Geophysics (with about 35 academic staff) prior to
the merge into the new Institute of Earth Sciences with about 200 employees.
The seismology group conducts research in a number of different fields
such as large- and microearthquake source studies, earthquake fault
mapping, local earthquake tomography, seismicity studies and seismic
hazard assessment. Members of the group were responsible for the design
of the seismological network in Iceland (the SIL network) and the group
is responsible for the Swedish seismological network which is now being
modernized with 18 new digital stations using the SIL technology.
