Seismic Monitoring Division:
Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSNDMC) is designated as the Nodal Agency in the State for monitoring of Seismic activity. Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre has established VSAT Enabled Permanent Seismic Monitoring Stations (PSMS) in Karnataka during the Year 2009-10 with a network of 12 Seismic Observatories in the State further extended to 14 covering Gulbarga, Raichur, Bijapur, Belgaum, Bellary, Uttara Kannada, Shimoga, Chitradurga, Hassan, Bangalore, Kodagu, Mandya, Chamarajnagar and Udupi. The said 14 sites were chosen in the manner of geological importance and vulnerability of the regions.
The capabilities of the said Network are :
  • Appropriate setup of Broadband Seismometers (CMG-3T), Strong Motion Accelerographs (CMG-5T), Digital Data Acquisition Systems (CMG-DM24-S6-EAM) synchronized with GPS and Solar Power Supply System (12V for Seismic Instrumentation & 24V for the VSAT Equipments) and associated accessories with VSAT Connectivity for data transmission to the Master Control Facility (MCF) at KSNDMC, Bangalore on Real time basis.
  • Unambiguously locating every possible Earthquake (Local, Regional & Teleseismic) with magnitudes M≥1.2 within the State, within the Country and outside the Country.
  • Every likely earthquake location in the State is within a distance of 100-150 kms from a minimum of 9-10 Seismic stations which can record all the three components of Ground Motion namely, Vertical (Z), North-South (NS) and East-West (EW).
Scientific approaches currently adopted to enhance our resilience to the Earthquake hazard are :
  • The first is aimed at providing long term protection to life and property which involves estimation of the Earthquake hazard in different areas of a region and its translation into Engineering aspects for Earthquake resistant structures and land use patterns in the area.
  • The second adopted along with the first is to keep a constant vigil on the evolving character of ground motion records emitted by small earthquakes from a wide area which is achieved by the said Network.

The 14 Observatories of the said PSMS Network of Karnataka is established in a way towards Dam Safety monitoring wherein 10 Observatories are located in Dam Site locations taking into consideration the Dam Induced Seismic activity. The 10 Dam Site locations are Almatti Dam (Bijapur), Hidkal Dam (Belgaum), Tunghabadra Dam (Bellary), Supa Dam (Uttara Kannada), Linganmakki Dam (Shimoga), Hemavathi Dam (Hassan), Thippagondanahalli Dam (Bangalore), Harangi Dam (Kodagu), Krishnarajasagara Dam (Mandya) and Gundal Dam (Chamarajnagar). The seamless data through a dedicated 20 kbps Bandwidth from the VSAT Enabled PSMS Network is received at the MCF, Bangalore and is analysed in terms of Local, Regional & Teleseismic Earthquakes. The analysed information is being made available to decision makers of the State, District and Taluk level through this centre’s web portal dmc.kar.nic.in; e-mail, SMS and technical reports. Periodical reports on the Quarry blast being recorded in the vicinity of PSMS Network are being prepared and submitted to the officials. Information is disseminated through Daily Earthquake Reports for Local, Regional & Teleseismic Earthquakes to the CM’s Office and offices of all Line Departments along with Deputy Commissioners, Joint Directors of Agriculture, Scientists of University of Agricultural Sciences, C-MMACS & Media Personnel. Technical Reports of Local Tremors within the State, if any, are provided to the concerned district DC, AC, Tahsildars, Village heads, Dam Site officials including Chief Engineer and media personnel for information and necessary action to be followed up.
