Comparing Technology While the Earth Moves….in Nicaragua

Comparing Technology While the Earth Moves….in #Nicaragua on November 1, 2019 at 15:24hrs UTC.  This moderate #magnitude M5.3 #earthquake’s epicenter was offshore and ~50kms deep below the sea floor.  Due to its location, the event did not cause damages nor injuries onshore.

The two #seismograms are nearly identical at the scale shown.  The event was recorded in Spring, TX (Station #E1TX, #RAD87) on an EQ-1 and a #RaspberryShake 1D seismograph.  Several wave forms were detected including: P, PP, PPP, S, SS, PCP and PCS.
