<img src="" alt="alaska earthquake observatory" width="126" height="104" align="right">Located at the Geophysical Institute of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the Alaska Earthquake Information Center receives data from more than 350 seismic sites. AEIC serves as an integration of all seismic networks within Alaska, also archiving and processing data from the Pacific Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center in Palmer, Alaska, (~20 sites), and the Alaska Volcano Observatory in Fairbanks and Anchorage (~90 sites). All sites in the network operate with a real-time data acquisition system at the Geophysical Institute. The network is further strengthened by three Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) sites, at College, Kodiak Island, and Adak. The Alaska Earthquake Information Center, a member of the Council of the National Seismic System (CNSS), is funded by the State of Alaska, NOAA, and USGS. Alaska Earthquake Information Center personnel locate and report about 22,000 earthquakes each year, and advise federal and state officials of each major earthquake's location and size within 30 minutes. In addition, the earthquake catalogs generated by AEIC are fundamental for seismic hazard studies, because they are the most important element in defining the seismic source zones and the level of seismicity.
