The BC-ESP is operated by Weston Observatory (a research laboratory of the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences). The BC-ESP uses seismology as a medium for inviting students into the world of science research by inquiry-based learning through investigation of earthquakes recorded by the seismograph in our school. The experiences our students have with investigating what is recorded on their seismograph are a valuable positive step in the direction of encouraging inquiry-based science education.

You can customize the display for location, time and other information by clicking on the settings button in the upper right corner of the site, next to the question mark.
