New earthquake monitors installed in Surrey

Earthquake monitoring

The British Geological Survey have installed new earthquake monitoring systems in Surrey.

It's in response to a number of tremors felt in the county this year, with the strongest being of magnitude three.

They hope the new seismic monitoring station will improve location and depth accuracy of readings from future earthquakes.

April saw the first earthquake in Surrey since records began, although the BGS have said they have found evidence of historical quakes.

On installing the new equipment the BGS said: "To improve location and depth accuracy we are in the process of installing two additional monitoring stations within 10km of the area of activity.

"The location and construction of seismic monitoring stations is complex, in order to ensure good data quality. We hope to have this completed by the end of this week, subject to landowner agreement."

All of the recent tremors have been centered around Newdigate, with residents reporting that they "felt large impact then 2-3 seconds of shaking" and "it was like two huge explosions".
