Director's report: 2018 (pdf)

The year 2018 was another productive year for the ISC thanks to the support of 65 Member-Institutions and 11 Project Sponsors and despite the loss of support from the local government in West Berkshire which, being under financial pressure from the central UK Government, subjected the ISC to annual taxes at the standard business rate. The data for earthquakes and other seismic events during 2015-2018 have been added to the ISC Bulletin. The timeliness of the ISC Bulletin has been improved from 35 to 30 months behind real time. The ISC Bulletin has been further rebuilt for the period 1980-1984. For the first time in ISC history, over 5,000 source mechanisms (1938- 1979, 2011-2016) have been computed by the ISC, based on first onset polarities, both reported to the ISC and determined by the ISC. The ISC-GEM catalogue was advanced for 1964-1979 and 2000-2015 periods. Both the ISC data download statistics and the large number of scientific research articles indicate an extensive worldwide use of ISC data.
