EMSC is the European Infrastructure
for seismological products in : 
Web Services


The EventID web service dynamically maps between the event identifiers used by different seismological institutions.


This web service provides access to the EMSC catalogue of event parameters and conforms to the FDSN-Event standard. Datasets can include all origins and all arrivals if requested.

Flinn-Engdahl Lookup

Identify the Flinn-Engdahl region for any coordinate of latitude and longitude.

Moment Tensors

Access to the moment tensors collected by the EMSC

Rupture Models

Provides all the rupture models from the SRCMOD database of Martin Mai (which is a database of finite-fault rupture models of past earthquakes). These earthquake source models are obtained from inversion or modelling of seismic, geodetic and other geophysical data, and characterize the space-time distribution of kinematic rupture parameters.

Felt reports

This service allows you to download the felt reports collected from eyewitness during earthquakes through the EMSC websites and the Lastquake mobile application.

(near) Realtime Notification

Near realtime notification of new and updated earthquake events using the WebSocket protocol. Any WebSocket client can connect to our service to be notified. Javascript and Python example codes are provided to demonstrate the service.
