Function and task

- Managing, operating and developing National seismic network.

- Conducting basic and applied researches for fast and accurately collecting data.

- Researching characteristic of wave propagation and strong ground motion in Vietnam and adjacent area for studying deep structure and seismic hazard assessment.

Network system


- 9 short period of 1s, 1 component sensors.

- 14 short period of 1s, 3 component sensors.

- 5 broadband sensors 120s-50Hz, going to add 20 sensors more.

Seismic networks

- Telemetry network for observing earthquake surround Hanoi and adjacent area.

- Short period network for observing earthquake in Vietnam and adjacent area. It is distributed on whole Vietnam, and mostly concentrate in Northern Vietnam.

We should not teach children the sciences; but give them a taste for them - Jean Jacques Rousseau
The more I spent time on maths, the more excited I got - Maryam Mirzakhani
Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it - Albert Einstein
All abstract sciences are nothing but the study of relations between signs - Denis Diderot
Every science begins as philosophy and ends as art - Will Durant
All abstract sciences are nothing but the study of relations between signs - Denis Diderot
Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind - Albert Einstein
In order to shake a hypothesis, it is sometimes not necessary to do anything more than push it as far as it will go - Denis Diderot
Society lives by faith, and develops by science - Henri Frederic Amiel
It is wrong to think that the task of physics is to find out how Nature is. Physics concerns what we say about Nature - Niels Bohr
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results - Albert Einstein
In all science error precedes the truth, and it is better it should go first than last - Horace Walpole
Art is the beautiful way of doing things. Science is the effective way of doing things. Business is the economic way of doing things - Elbert Hubbard
