The paper seismogram tracings collected from 1905 to 1992 were donated from John Carroll University.
Paper seismic tracings of worldwide earthquakes were recorded by the John Carroll University Seismic Observatory, Cleveland Ohio from 1909 to 1992. Each daily drum-recorder record measures 30 cm by 102 cm. A total of 6,205 tracings of the estimated 40,000 seismic tracings record earthquake events.
The seismogram tracings will be inventoried, entered into a data base, and Metadata generated that will be provided to the USGS and the public as some of the products to be delivered at the completion of Ohio's FY 2008 NGGDPP Grant Award. Scanning of these seismograms and creating digital files available via the internet would enhance the utilization of this data by the public.
