GEOFON Publication Information

A partial list of scientific publications acknowledging GEOFON products is here.

Citing data sets obtained from GEOFON

Thank you for using the data we provide. Many organisations are involved in producing and preparing the data available from GEOFON.

Digital Object Indentifiers (DOIs). Some of the data sets provided here have DOIs associated with their seismic network, following the new (21 July 2014) "FDSN recommendations for seismic network DOIs and related FDSN services". Where this is the case, this is shown on the page for that network, which you can reach from our archive page. Please use the DOI indicated in your acknowledgements or citations as appropriate, if one is available. For example:

A. Author et al. (1980). Data report for the PQ network
deployment, Central Atlantis region, 1978-1979. doi:10.5880/geofon.srapto


This work included data from the XX, YY and ZZ seismic networks, obtained
from the GEOFON data centre.

For GE network data, you may use a citation text like

GEOFON Data Centre (1993): GEOFON Seismic Network. Deutsches GeoForschungsZentrum GFZ. 
   Other/Seismic Network. doi:10.14470/TR560404. 

Not all seismic networks have a DOI available yet; the FDSN offers a helpful service to search for these.
