Seismic/Eruption runs in a PC Windows environment. It displays maps of many portions of the world and displays earthquakes and volcanic eruptions in speeded-up time. You can generate your own maps interactively. Three-dimensional and cross-section views can also be displayed. Hypocenter files for the world from 1960 through the present of magnitude 5.0 and above and for the USA of magnitude 4.0 and above and California of magnitude 3.0 and above for the same period are provided. These have been obtained from the U.S. Geological Survey. In addition there is a dataset for Cook Inlet, Alaska. The eruption dataset is provided by the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution. The name of each volcano is displayed while it is erupting.
