The seismological branch of the Munich Earth Observatory (MEO) with its seismic stations Fürstenfeldbruck (FUR) and Wettzell (WET) observes the world wide earthquake activity and is part of the German Regional Seismic Network (GRSN). In addition, the MEO forms the data and analysis center for the BayernNetz, a network of 21 digital seismic stations designed for monitoring the seismic activity in Bavaria and neighboring areas ( data catalogue (phase arrivals, source parameters) of the MEO is send to the Federal Institute of Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) for publishing two yearly bulletins "Erdbeben in Deutschland" and "Data catalogue of earthquakes in Germany and adjacent areas".

Furthermore seismological data (phase arrivals, amplitudes, periods, magnitudes and intensities) of local, regional and teleseismic earthquakes are sent regularly to international agencies (NEIS - Denver/USA; EMSC - Bruyeres le Chatel/F; ISC - Newbury/GB).

The focus of the scientific research at the MEO seismology branch consists on the investigation of swarm quake areas and mechanisms (Vogtland; Bad Reichenhall) and research on volcano induced seismic signals as well as in improving monitoring capabilities of seismological/volcanic surveillance networks.
