Title: NetQuakes Instrument in Place
NetQuakes strong-motion instruments enable seismologists to collect extensive data in urban areas where installing traditional seismographs is not practical. This instrument (in blue, to the right of the upended chairs) takes up very little space in a San Francisco Bay Area resident's garage. It is the size of a car battery, runs on a home wifi network and captures data on an ordinary 2GB flash drive.
