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 forced tests.

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 database is updated each time a new event is being recorded. Check for "New Event Upload Notifications" in the "Announcements" section of this home page.

The EUROSEISTEST database web portal was greatly inspired by ITACA ( 


Although data have been reviewed by highly specialized staff, their correctness is to be appreciated by the end user.
