Data from all stations are transmitted in real time mode to the Seismic Center in the National Institute of Geophysics, Geodesy and Geography – Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (NIGGG – BAS). NIGGG is the only organization in Bulgaria in charge of acquisition of seismological information and is the national information center of rapid earthquake information and seismic hazard mitigation. The National Seismological Network of Bulgaria consists of 41 stations spanning the entire territory of the country. Seismological equipment of the stations is comprised of BB and VBB seismometers installed in 24 stations, SP seismometers installed in 9 stations and Accelerometers installed in 18 stations. The data are archived in miniSEED and PASSCAL formats mainly in 100sps rate. Data exchange to/from International Data Centers, Nodes and Neighbor Countries is accomplished by SeisComp/SeedLink protocol.
