Abstract

Complex networks of high-tech sensors are tough to operate and maintain in developing countries – but new low-costs, low-maintenance instruments may help. Because they are “connected objects” they also provide new opportunities to engage the civil society in citizen-science. Here we describe a seismological instrumentation experiment in Haiti with sensors that cost less than 500$ and can be installed at individuals, businesses, and schools. We seek to test how such instruments can (1) complement the national seismic network for regional earthquake location and magnitude determination, and (2) open a new communication gateway between seismologists and the civil society.
