The German GeoForschungsZentrum (GFZ) in Potsdam operates a worldwide network of almost 80 stations where seismometers record ground vibrations. Overall, there are only a few of these global networks, but they all work closely together. The denser the measuring network, the faster the location of the earthquake center and the strength of the quake can be determined. The seismometer network GEOFON of the German Research Center for Geosciences stands for GEOForschungsNetzwerk. You can find current global earthquake reports on the GFZ website .
