70 years of historic seismological data from the Caltech seismic data are at risk of being lost permanently. These data represent a significant part of our scientific and cultural heritage. Researchers and past Directors of the Seismological Laboratory such as Charles Richter, Frank Press, and Beno Gutenberg have made substantial contributions to our science not only in their research but in their stewardship of the facility. These legacy data are irreplaceable and indispensable in the studies of our changing earth.
Contributions will give us the ability to store these records indefinitely.
