Project „bauhaus under ground“ goes online
On January 19th, 2011 in the “Parkhöhle – Weimar” the seismic station of the Earthquake Damage Analysis Centre (EDAC) of the Faculty of Civil Engineering at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar is come officially into operation. Since that moment, the earthquake sensor permanently connected to the computer center of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and expanded as a station " Klassik Stiftung Weimar – Bauhaus-Universität Weimar“, the German monitoring network. "With this station special events in the immediate environment but also worldwide occurring earthquakes are recorded." explained Dr. Jochen Schwarz, head of the Earthquake Damage Analysis Centre (EDAC) and the initiator of the project "Bauhaus under ground " launched in 2009.This project was implemented in cooperation with the Klassik Stiftung Weimar and the Weimarer Mal- und Zeichenschule.
The recorded ground motions can be followed live on a monitor directly in the “Parkhöhle” and on another monitor in the foyer of the lecture hall building of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar in Marienstr. 13. On a rotating globe, the current global earthquake activity with the position of the located earthquakes is displayed. The strongest registrations are marked separately in the daily records. The measurements can be seen in an earthquake-journal on this page.
