Earthquake & Tsunamis

Hydrophones are notably used in earthquake and tsunami monitoring, playing a vital role in detecting and analyzing underwater sound from pressure activities during seismic events. The icListen smart digital hydrophone excels in capturing the sounds produced by earthquakes and underwater landslides.

Strategically deployed in oceanic regions near tectonic plate boundaries, icListen hydrophones enable researchers to effectively monitor seismic activity. This capability enhances tsunami early warning systems, offering valuable data for assessing tsunami threats and facilitating timely alerts and evacuation procedures in coastal communities vulnerable to tsunami inundation. Real-time analysis of processed data enables rapid detection and characterization of seismic events and tsunami generation, bolstering situational awareness and disaster preparedness efforts in earthquake- and tsunami-prone regions. By providing early warning capabilities and supporting swift response measures, icListen hydrophones contribute significantly to improving overall disaster resilience and response effectiveness. 

Why choose the icListen for Earthquake & Tsunamis?

  • They are easily deployed. The icListen hydrophone is designed to be small and light, making it easy to transport and handle. This compact design reduces the logistical challenges typically associated with deploying underwater acoustic equipment. 
  • They have event detection.  
  • They are can go deep. The icListen can go to 6000m in some cases and is built in a titanium body.
