National Earthquake Information Center
The mission of the National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC) is to determine rapidly the location and size of all destructive earthquakes worldwide - and to immediately disseminate this information to concerned national and international agencies, scientists, and the general public.
The NEIC compiles and maintains an extensive, global seismic database on earthquake parameters and their effects that serves as a solid foundation for basic and applied earth science research.
