TexNet: An earthquake monitoring network

The University of Texas at Austin Bureau of Economic Geology has finished installing the state’s earthquake monitoring network, TexNet, and thanks to a new interactive website, the public can follow and sort seismic activity in Texas in real time.

Nanometrics instrumentation contributed directly to Nobel prize winning physics!

The 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded to three US scientists for their roles in detecting gravity waves, which was achieved for the first time in September 2015. Nanometrics' Trillium 240 seismometers played a part in this important experiment, measuring ground motion in the massive LIGO detectors and feeding that back to actively cancel out vibrations in the detecting mirrors and lasers.

See the Nobel prize CBC news article and our February 2016 web news announcement for more information.

We'll see you in Houston for SEG 2017

We are pleased to be both exhibiting and presenting at next week’s SEG Annual Meeting in Houston, Texas.

As presenters:


Our own Director of Technical Operations, Dario Baturan, will be presenting:

“Induced seismicity risk mitigation strategies: Montney case study”

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at 11:00 AM in 370C


As exhibitors:

You’ll find us at booth #1909, where we’d be happy to meet with you one-on-one to discuss:

  • seismic risk management with our passive seismic monitoring solutions

  • cost-effective microseismic monitoring via Passive Frac Imaging (PFI)

  • innovative approaches to regulatory compliance via our subscription arrays

  • selecting the right seismic instrumentation to meet your monitoring requirements

  • Athena, our web-based seismic catalog management tool

  • ISM and PFI case studies that highlight the depth and breadth of our experience

To pre-book a meeting with one of our team, email alyssaparks@nanometrics.ca.
