Seismo-Live is an interactive online learning
platform for seismology. It utilizes
Most links on the front page lead to tools and
projects that are used on Seismo-Live. The
glowing green button will launch a light-weight
remote virtual machine with ready to use
interactive notebooks. Click on it to get started.
Jupyter Notebook Overview
Once you clicked the green button, an overview
of all available notebooks will be shown in a
new tab. Choose any. If you have never seen
this before, the Python Courses ones
also contains a quick introduction on how to
use the notebooks.
There is also some
official documentation on how to use the notebooks and lots of tutorials can be found in the internet.
These notebooks are not persistent. Any changes will be discarded after being idle for 30 minutes.
Seismo-Live aims to collect all kinds of
digital learning resources for seismology and
offer them via this portal here. We currently
have Jupyter notebooks but we plan to extend
this with more detailed texts and videos.
Many institutes and labs have their own
learning resources. Seismo-Live enables them to
be shared with the whole community to the
benefit of all.
Installing it on your own Machine
As the notebooks on Seismo-Live are not persistent
it might be of interest to install them on your own
for up-to-date installation instructions.

All notebooks currently are based on Python but
that is not a requirement of the platform - we can
accommodate tutorials and resources written in any
open-source programming language (no Matlab and SAC
- sorry - but for example Octave would work) as
long as the computational and data requirements are
