I am interested in purchasing another RS to slowly build a network for citizen scientists in Fiji. I already have a station in Suva, Fiji and I am able to access an IRIS station about 60km away from my station. However, a third station in this area would be better as I would be able to better triangulate earthquake epicentres - with 2 it is quite hard. My main interest is to capture small local earthquakes that are not reported by global agencies.
- If I was to purchase one more RS, would I be able to triangulate earthquake epicentres using the new one plus the existing 2?
- Also is there any automated way to triangulate the epicentres and add them to the Shakenet app or would I need to manually use the P and S wave picks from each three stations on a program like Swarm?
What I do at the moment is use my station and the IRIS station and carefully make P and S wave picks to determine its distance and the map automatically draws two circles and show where they intersect. I was just wondering if with 3 stations it will be easier and if it can be automated and added to shakenet app in the events list.
Thank you for your help!
