The IISER Kolkata Seismological Observatory has been setup as a research facility for Solid Earth Studies within the Department of Earth Sciences. The observatory has two major components:
(i) Permanent broadband 3-component seismograph station

The facility was inagaurated on 18 November 2010 and is located within the IISER Kolkata main campus in Mohanpur. In addition to the permanent observatory, we operate temporary seismograph networks in the Himalaya and the Bengal Basin for seismotectonic studies.
