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...
