Early Warning Systems and Seismic Wave Processing with Python

Earthquakes are natural phenomena that cause awe but most importantly, many disasters at the same time. That is the reason why the science of seismology is very important, and its systematic study may possibly develop methods so that earthquakes can be predicted or more precisely to be warned in time.

This is a scenario (40 hrs of duation) composing of the following ones:
