This site constitutes
the data dissemination portal of the EUROSEISTEST database. EUROSEISTEST
is a multidisciplinary European experimental site for integrated
studies in earthquake engineering, engineering seismology, seismology
and soil dynamics. It is the longest running valley-instrumentation
project worldwide, and is located in Mygdonia valley (epicenter area of
the 1978, M6.4 earthquake), about 30km to the NE of the city of
Thessaloniki in northern Greece. It consists of a 3D strong motion array
and an instrumented SDOF structure (EuroProteas) to perform free and
All strong motion records that have been recorded by the EUROSEIS permanent network (network code: EG)
since its establishment in 1993, are available for visualization and/or
downloading (in sac, little-endian, or ascii format) through the
"Database search" page. Information relative to the stations and
metadata (VS profiles, borehole data, dynamic properties of
the soil etc) are also distributed (in ascii format, wherever possible)
through the "Database search - Stations" page. The data of the
"EuroProteas" tests are available upon request.

The EUROSEISTEST database web portal was greatly inspired by ITACA (http://itaca.mi.ingv.it/ItacaNet/).
Although data have been reviewed by highly specialized staff, their correctness is to be appreciated by the end user.
