The study of earthquakes is of global interest, mainly because the comprehension of such phenomena is useful to safeguard human lives. To this aim, tools (such as seismic networks and arrays, but also data analysis procedures) by which detect and localize from small to large magnitudes earthquakes quickly and accurately are fundamental. Since the last few years, advances in technology have allowed seismologists to design seismic networks more and more sophisticated (with boreholes or ocean bottom sensors). At the same time, potentially interesting seismological information can be obtained by instruments developed for different purposes (e.g., optical fiber, geophones, rotational sensors).
Besides earthquakes, there are many phenomena that we are able to record with seismic networks; they are both of natural origin (as volcanic eruptions, landslides, sinkholes, weather events, meteorite impacts), and anthropogenic (as underground fluid injections, quarry blasts, nuclear explosions, etc.).
In this special issue we aim to collect scientific papers focused on advanced techniques of seismic monitoring or data analysis of natural and anthropogenic events. Also, contributions from studies carried out by ‘unconventional’ seismic networks are welcome.
