The Caribbean Netherlands Seismic Network NA is the national network of seismometers deployed by the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Network (KNMI) to monitor seismicity in the Caribbean Netherlands region. KNMI deployed the first seismic stations in this region in 2006 with seismometers (STS-2) installed at St. Maarten, St. Eustatius and Saba. Currently, the network comprises a total of 4 broad band seismometers at Saba, 4 at St. Eustatius and one on St. Maarten. Data is send in real-time to KNMI and the Tsunami Warning Center at Puerto Rico. Data from all sensors are openly available to the research community through FDSN standardized webservices at KNMI, as well as through the standard services provided by ORFEUS and EIDA.
