BACKGROUND


The "Centro de Instrumentación y Registro Sísmico, A.C.", is a non lucrative civil association founded on June of 1986, originally under the sponsorship of Fundación Javier Barros Sierra, A. C., as a useful way to mitigate possible disasters like those that suffered Mexico city in 1985.


DESCRIPTION

The Mexico city government authorities have patronized, since its beginning in 1987, the design and development of the current accelerograph network RACM. This technological resource, that depends on CIRES, has permitted to obtain information to understand and eventually adapt the seismic design factors of the construction regulations of Mexico city.

RACM

To warn about the effects of big earthquakes occurring in Guerrero's coast, with the support of Public Works Department Mexico City, since December of 1989, CIRES develops the seismic alert system of Mexico city, SAS.

SAS

Furthermore, in Oaxaca, after the earthquakes that affected this entity in 1999, CIRES works in the instrumentation of then Oaxaca seismic alert system SASO, with the support of the government of this state. These systems are useful resources that improve the results of designing and practicing simulacrums to reduce seismic vulnerability. SAS warning can be picked up by the personalized early warning system SASPER, this is a radio receiver capable of controlling the emission of the seismic warning sound. To assure the efficacy of SAS, periodic automatic verifying functions are made.

CIRES researches and develops accesible digital recording and monitoring systems, to know and analyze the dynamic response of soil and structures under earthquake's action like strong motion recorder RAD and the digital strong motion recorder system for structures SADE.

DIFFUSION


To promote the training of specialized human resources, CIRES organizes seminaries, courses, conferences and events that allows the diffusion of knowledge about seismic phenomenons monitoring; It also makes internal projects of technological developments with engineering students participation, who perform their social service and work out their professional thesis.

TESIS

CONVENANTS AND WORK ABROAD


CIRES diffuses its labour in specialized congresses of seismic engineering and early warning systems, in Mexico and abroad. Furthermore it collaborates with specialized institutions and publishes its works in magazines and manuals. CIRES keeps relations with international institutions like:
- International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior, IASPEI
- United States Geological Survey, USGS
- Electric Power Research Institute, EPRI
- EQE International

- Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, Universite Mont Pelliere II, CNRS, France.
CIRES is a member of Civil Protection Department of Mexico City counsil, and is registered in the Registro Nacional de Instituciones Científicas y Tecnológicas CONACyT.
