Short description

Egyptian National Seismic Network (ENSN)
Recording, monitoring, and analyzing the natural and artificial seismic events are the main objectives of the Egyptian National Seismic Network (ENSN). The main center of the ENSN is located at Helwan, Cairo, besides a group of seven regional seismic centers covering all parts of the Arab Republic of Egypt. These sub-centers provide expertise and advice to decision-makers in surrounding governorates and regions on the most appropriate sites for development projects and architectural designs in order to achieve comprehensive, integrated and sustainable development. The seismological acquisition and processing at ENSN is a fully automated network system dedicated to the digital acquisition and real-time processing of seismological data, as well as the rapid exchange of earthquake information.
