The main objective of the « SEISMOLOGY/OBS » program is the continuous, broad-band, high-resolution observation of ground motion, especially high latitudes of the southern hemisphere, which are still insufficiently sampled despite the improvements of the past few years. Recorded and quality controlled data are freely distributed to the international scientific community both in real- and delayed-time. Our data contribute equally to global and regional tomographic studies, to seismicity studies, and to studies of microseismic noise. Real-time data from our sub-Antarctic stations are used for tsunami warning alerts in the Indian Ocean, for which they are particularly valuable. Our goals are to maintain or improve the quality of the data, to improve the robustness of the data recording and distribution procedures, and to increase their national and international utilization.
