The Technological Development Centre for Remote Acquisition and Data Processing Systems (SARTI UPC) worked on the installation of a surface buoy and an ocean-bottom seismometer in the framework of the project INTMARSIS (Interoperability and Instrumentation of Marine Autonomous Platforms for Seismic Monitoring).

It is an extension of the OBSEA Seafloor Observatory whose objectives are to provide solutions to the need for seismic monitoring in the marine environment and to detect earthquakes and earth movements continuously and in real time. To make this possible, a range of measurement and data communication technologies were incorporated.

In view of the results obtained in shallow waters (el OBSEA is installed at a depth of 20 metres), its application at greater depths will be considered.

The project was funded by the Ministry of the Economy, Industry and Competitiveness.
