The islands of Polynesia, Micronesia and Melanesia are well known for their friendly people, beautiful beaches and tropical island terrain.
The Pacific Islands also commonly experiences earthquakes, where the Pacific plate is being taken away under the Australian plate. Most of the earthquakes experienced in these friendly islands are so deep that they are not felt greatly on land and unlikely to trigger a tsunami, which is a concern around this area.
If a major shallow earthquake should occur in this region, and if the islands are unprepared for this, then the large loss of life could occur and Emergency Management Services would be compromised.
To ensure that important or essential buildings on these islands are able to withstand major seismic activity you need to understand how these buildings behave during seismic activity now. Our Structural Health Monitoring System (SHMS) can accurately provide this information to allow for improvements, if required, to ensure the people within are protected.
Global Seismic Data is here to help you set up these sensors to beginning planning now to make the future brighter during and following major seismic activity.
