Title: 60 years of monitoring volcanic and earthquake activity in the English-speaking Eastern Caribbean
Author: Latchman, Joan L. "et al."
Description: The history of the Seismic Research Centre of The University of the West Indies is documented, from its origins as the Volcano Research Department in downtown Port-of-Spain in 1953, through its move to St Augustine in 1959, as the Seismic Research Unit, to its present status as a University Centre. The story of its slow but steady development describes the work of the pioneering staff, and records staff changes over the years. The gradual improvements in scienfitic instrumentation and monitoring systems in the Eastern Caribbean is described and notable monitoring successes with respect to seismic events are highlighted. The Centre has contributed to international and regional scientifc research, to the production of regional hazard maps, and to educational outreach material.
