  • The Quake-Catcher Network is a joint collaborative initiative run by Stanford University and UC Riverside that aims to use computer-based accelerometers to detect earthquakes. It uses the BOINC volunteer computing platform. It currently supports newer Mac laptops which have the built-in accelerometer, and the newer IBM/Lenovo thinkpads. It also supports three external USB devices currently - the JoyWarrior 24F8, the ONavi sensor, and the MotionNode Accel. In 2011, project scientist Elizabeth Cochran was awarded a Presidential Early Career Award from US President Barack Obama in large part due to her founding of the Quake-Catcher Network project.
