The Consortium of Organizations for Strong-Motion Observation Systems

A public-interest nonprofit corporation for earthquake safety

Mission: To expand and modernize significantly the acquisition and application of strong-motion data in order to increase public safety from earthquakes.

One of the major objectives of COSMOS is to promote the advancement of strong-motion measurement in densely urbanized areas and other locations of special significance to a society likely to be struck by future earthquakes.

Membership in COSMOS is open to all agencies, organizations, private companies and consultants, professional institutions, professional societies, and universities.

COSMOS has been established under the guidance of the Committee for the Advancement of Strong Motion Programs (CASMP; C. Stepp, chairman) with the support of the National Science Foundation and charter endorsement by the California Division of Mines and Geology, the U.S. Geological Survey, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
