COSMOS Publications


COSMOS publications are divided into the following categories:

● Guidelines: Part of COSMOS' mission is to standardize the collection, monitoring, archiving, and dissemination of data. These guidelines are the first step toward developing international standards.

● Reports, Papers, and Presentations: these include reports in response to requests by governmental agencies, and papers and presentations at conferences.

● COSMOS Newsletters: these include informative newsletters detailing COSMOS' activities as we strive to further our mission and goals.

● COSMOS Workshop Proceedings: these include all COSMOS-sponsored workshops, both under COSMOS' sponsorship and in conjunction with other agencies, including U.S. Geological Survey, the California Geological Survey, California Department of Transportion, and the Federal Highway Administration.

● VDC Fact Sheets are published when major upgrades and changes have been made to the Virtual Data Center and we want to alert our members to these exciting changes.

COSMOS is a non-profit organization whose goal is to expand and significantly modernize the acquisition and application of strong-motion data in order to increase public safety from earthquakes.
