Seismic Monitoring
   Current seismic monitoring on the Galapagos Islands is being done through the Seismic and Volcanic Network of Galapagos, which was started in 1997 as an agreement between the Charles Darwin Foundation and National Polytechnic School in Quito. The coverage of the Network contains the Fernandina, Isabela, and San Salvador volcanoes. Seismic monitoring information is important for several reasons, a key reason being the safety of the local inhabitants and surrounding marine interests. All seismic information from this Network and from the Seismological Laboratory of Albuquerque, who installed a seismograph in the islands, will be integrated into the central database system. Note that there have been no new initiatives proposed, because it appears that the seismic network covers the key reasons for seismic monitoring.
