ORFEUS Observatories & Research Facilities for European Seismology

ORFEUS is the non-profit foundation to coordinate and promote digital, broadband seismology in the European-Mediterranean area.

EIDA is the European Integrated Data Archive infrastructure within ORFEUS to provide access to seismic waveform data in European archives.

Important information for ArcLink users:

Starting from 01 December 2019 ORFEUS EIDA will no longer support ArcLink requests for data access, and ArcLink requests will fail.

Users are encouraged to switch to using webservices in advance in order to ensure seamless access to EIDA data. Please consult the examples on how to use the webservices.

To access restricted data (e.g. AlpArray) using webservices please consult the pages on the EIDA Authentication System (EAS) on how to request a token. Both ObsPy and the command line client fdsnws_fetch can be used to access restricted data using te token (see examples of code here).
