The TriNet project, launched in 1997, created an improved, real-time seismic monitoring network in Southern California. Planning of the network began in 1995 (e.g., Heaton et al., 1996), building on the success of the earlier TERRAscope network, which included 24 digital broadband and strongmotion instruments throughout Southern California (e.g., Kanamori et al., 1993). At the end of the five-year TriNet project the network comprised 150 real-time digital broadband stations and another 400 strong-motion sensors, 50 of which were also real-time. This network is now recording digital broadband data for Southern California earthquakes at an unprecedented rate, data that are already proving valuable for investigations of earthquake sources and regional wave propagation, as well as earthquake response.
