In addition to this, a network of 40 Strong Motion Accelerographs (SMA) is also established to record strong ground motions.
Accelerographs (instruments that measure how much the ground moves during an earthquake) will record shifts in the structures due to tremors.
When fully operational, the ANSS will be an advanced monitoring system (modern digital seismographs and accelerographs, communications networks, data collection and processing centers, archival and alert systems, and well-trained personnel) distributed across the United States.
