Online Seismograms in and near South Carolina
The map above shows the location of seismic stations for which you can view seismograms online. The data from these and other seismometers are routinely used to locate and determine the magnitude of earthquakes in South Carolina. The seismic stations shown above are operated by three different agencies (see below). Click on links below and navigate to the seismic station to view the seismograms.
USNSN - United State National Seismic Network

CNNC - Cliffs of the Neuse, North Carolina
GOGA - Godfrey, Georgia
MYNC - Murphy, North Carolina
NHSC - New Hope, South Carolina
These seismic stations are operated by the US Geological Survey (http://earthquake.usgs.gov/) and form the "backbone" for earthquake recording within the USA. These seismograms are good for viewing moderate-sized earthquakes in South Carolina and neighboring states and large earthquakes worldwide.
SCSN - South Carolina Seismic Network

COW - Cow Castle Creek, South Carolina
JSC - Jenkinsville, South Carolina
LHS - Liberty Hill, South Carolina
These seismic stations are operated by the South Carolina Seismic Network (http://scsn.seis.sc.edu/) and are good for viewing seismograms from small and moderate earthquakes within South Carolina.
ANSS - Advanced National Seismic System

ADSC - Addlestone School, West Ashley, Charleston
C1SC - at The Citadel, near Hampton Park, Charleston
C2SC - at The Citadel, near the Ashley River, Charleston
TRSC - Trident Research Center, North Charleston
These seismic stations are part of the Advanced National Seismic System (http://earthquake.usgs.gov/research/monitoring/anss/). They are strong ground motion instruments designed to record very strong earthquake shaking. If there is a large earthquake in the State of South Carolina these stations will give the best record. They will also record moderate earthquakes near Charleston very well.
